The U.S. Bancorp Foundation has granted the Port Angeles Symphony's Adventures in Music school project $3,000 as part of the company's local contributions program.
U.S. Bank supports organizations that improve educational and economic opportunities and enhance the cultural and artistic life of communities.
The grant will allow students in kindergarten-fifth grade to hear quality live performing arts programs during the school year.
Supporting curriculum and audio materials provided to teachers offer lesson plans and suggestions for integrating the arts into other curriculum areas. Students receive a handout following the performance to reinforce the concepts presented. The curriculum and performances used are written specifically to meet the needs of the students in local school districts and to take advantage of local resources.
