Music in our Schools Month
Since 1985, the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) has designated March as Music In Our Schools Month. Music instruction enables students to acquire essential knowledge and skills that include the ability to think critically, solve problems resourcefully, make informed judgments, work cooperatively within groups, appreciate different cultures, and use their imagination and be creative. Go to Fine Arts for music instructional resources.
Youth Art Month
Youth art education develops students’ creative potential and improves problem-solving and critical thinking skills by reinforcing and bringing to life what students learn in other subjects. Go to Fine Arts for visual art instructional resources to celebrate Youth Art Month.
