unique arts instruction and public art program. The hosts were Vice

"We hosted 25 art
educators from around the country on Friday, March 28," said Masse.
"Discussions were had about how the our program is linking arts
instruction with the common core standards for each grade level, how we
are able to sustain our program with the help of our PTF, and the
crucial support we receive from our administration for the arts."
