Arts Awareness Initiatives
Arts education has many benefits. It is associated with improvements with confidence, social skills, concentration, motivation, memorization, classroom participation, teamwork and making a commitment to a group.
Ranger Good Works gives funding for instruction and supplies for after school dance clubs. Dillard’s Principal reports to us that the students who participate in the clubs have a higher level of interest in their classes during the day. The students’ grades and attendance on an average are 50% better than students not participating in a club at Dillard Elementary. The students work hard so they may join in the fun with the other kids in the clubs. Keeping the children in a safe, fun and stimulating environment after school is having a positive effect. Join our fight to help give students a chance to feel good about who they are and dream about who they can be when they grow up.
