MONROE, NH -- The learning community at Monroe Consolidated School invites the community to experience arts learning in action at the school on Thursday, March 21 at 6:30 p.m. at the Monroe Town Hall.
In Measuring Up, the New Hampshire Arts Education Data Project Report, Virginia Barry, NH Commissioner of Education, wrote: I believe the arts are an important component of education for the whole child, preparing students more completely for success in college and careers. The skills developed by studying the arts include collaboration, creativity, problem-solving, flexibility, and perseverance; and these are critical to the 21st Century skills needed to succeed in college, career and life. The arts enliven our schools with music, visual arts, dance, and theatre and showcase our students' abilities in these areas.
Working with the NH Arts Learning Network, Monroe Consolidated School is committed to supporting arts education for all students. All are invited to witness the power of arts learning during the month of March, designated as Arts Education Month. There will be a visual arts display, as well as several performances of dance, song, instrumental music and theater at the event Thursday.
