Salcha School Awarded Cultural Collaborations Excursion Grant!

The Alaska State Council on the Arts, through generous funding from the Rasmuson Foundation and the State of Alaska, have awarded Salcha Elementary School an excursion grant for our children to attend two theater productions in the next month. Our K-2 students will be viewing North Star Ballet's The Nutcracker Ballet at Hering AuditoriumNovember 30th while the 3rd-6th grade students will attend a performance of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe at Riverside Theater December 7th. Grant funding provides transportation and admission for our students to experience these special performing art productions in Fairbanks. Our teachers will prepare our children to fully embrace their experience by introducing new vocabulary, studying the literary versions of the performance including compare and contrast opportunities between the books, movies, and performances. We are very excited to immerse our children in the world of the arts. Don't forget to thank your state legislator for funding the arts in our great state!
