It’s National Art Education Week!

Did you know that students who take art classes receive higher test scores and overall grades?

Why then are 68% of public schools cutting their art programs, art budgets, all over the country?

Abraham Lincoln Elementary is proud to provide a great music program (the orchestra) and believes in utilizing visualization, music and other forms of the arts in teaching our students. We have begun to an uprise in our overall scores.

We are also proud to host Mrs. Rafael’s Ballet Folklorico de Mexico group that practices after school hours and recently performed at Disneyland. Great job guys!

Make sure the arts are a viable part of your student’s education. It’s not just about finger paint and macaroni crafts…it’s about a better education!
