Each year, the Patton PTA allocates money for Arts in Education. We fund different assemblies throughout the year and have one day of school dedicated to the performing arts. This day is the annual Patton Arts Day Festival. This year’s Patton Arts in Education Day will be held on March 15, 2019 and our theme is Out of the Box. Our Out of the Box line up is filled with fun and unique ways to experience performance and visual arts. Arts day is a super fun day to be a Patton Pioneer!
To make this day possible, the Arts in Education Chair along with the help of other parent volunteers make up the Arts Day Committee. They help to make this a long standing tradition possible. Arts Day is in need of volunteers with positions ranging from hosting performers, delivering sack lunches and working sound just to name a few. Being a Pioneer Volunteer for Arts Day is so much fun and definitely an amazing experience. You as a volunteer the day of the event will be able to not only view these amazing shows but also get to mingle with performers along with being fed breakfast and lunch throughout the day in the hospitality room. Signups will be open until February 25, 2019.
Some changes this year if you have volunteered in the past. Due to a higher standard of security to maintain the safest environment for our students, a background check is required for all parent volunteers. Also any volunteers that will be escorting performers and students, we are asking that you stay after the committee meeting on March 1st for just 20 min to receive some additional safety training so that we all know the protocols just in case an emergency would arise on Arts day. Because of these changes volunteer sign ups this year will have a deadline of Feb 25th and you must be listed on the volunteer sign up roster to be in attendance. This deadline is to give adequate time for last minute background checks to be verified and to help make sure we don’t have any extra spectators to this closed to the public event.
If you have any questions about positions or ways to be involved with the event please feel free to email the Arts in Education Chair Elexa Hernandez Martinez.
Patton PTA thanks all our 2017-18 Hospitality Sponsors for their kind donations.
