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 arts. Think of it as a mini multicultural SXSW at Patton.
The Arts in Education Committee coordinates the Patton Arts in Education Day, an all-day festival of musicians, visual artists, and performing artists, to name a few. This year’s event is Dance Around the World and will include 6 performance groups of musicians and dance performers. Arts Day will be taking place on March 9, 2018. Parent volunteers are needed for everything from hosting and escorting performers around our campus, delivering sack lunches to the classrooms and working sound, just to name a few. This year’s performance roster is currently full but any parents who would like to volunteer their own special artistic talents (or those of friends or relatives) are encouraged to do so by emailing the Arts in Education Chair.
Below is a listing of open positions and also a link to the Arts Day sign up genius. Some perks for helping and being a part of the Arts Day Team is we all get to enjoy the shows while volunteering and all volunteers that work the day of the event get to enjoy the hospitality room along with the performers. This event is such a team effort, any and all help is greatly appreciated. If you have any questions about positions or the event please feel free to email the Arts in Education Chair Elexa Hernandez Martinez. Arts day is a super fun day to be a Patton Pioneer!
