We were fortunate enough to attend Nā Lei Hulu I Ka Wēkiu which was presented by Arts for the Schools. The performance was outstanding and at a caliber two notches above what I would expect for a rural region. Thank you AFtS!

I have enjoyed the benefits provided to our community by Arts for the Schools as an audience member, parent and educator. There are many students within our district who see the opportunities offered by Arts for the Schools as a "life-line" . The organization brings natiaonally recognized performers to a region that is geographically isolated. It also provides many enrichment opportunities that have expanded the minds of our youth. Without Arts for the Schools, the quality of life in our region would be significantly diminished.

Living in a small community in the mountains makes it hard to get the local children in front of cultural and educational art. Arts for the Schools continues to bring this much needed art to our area. Children who would otherwise never see live performance art or live music are able to partake and be enriched by this fantastic organization. We are so fortunate to have them working for our community!
