Arts in Education are an important aspect of the growth and development of each child into an adult who is able to have a richer understanding of his/her world. I am certain that we all remember those wonderful activities that we have experienced and continue to enjoy in the areas of Art, Music, Dance, and Theater. Some of our fondest memories of school relate to programs in the Arts.Arts Education is not an add on or an adjunct to Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic, but rather an important and integral part of what makes a student become a contributing member to an enlightened society.I encourage you to take advantage of the programs that we offer in the Newport Public Schools and hope to see you at our many concerts and other events that are open to parents and community members.
