Garden Road Creative Arts Opportunities
Students who participate in the arts do better in school! Garden Road Elementary School is fortunate to have a PTA sponsored art program led by Mrs. Jean Snow. Mrs. Snow regularly meets with classrooms to incorporate an art curriculum into our students' academic programs. Click on the program overview below for additional information.
While students are encouraged to explore their creativity in the classroom, additional creative arts contests and activities are often available through various sponsors. Review the current opportunities listed below and encourage your child to participate in these creative arts endeavors!
If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Snow at email@example.com.
