SGUSD Celebrates National Arts in Education Week
September 13-19, 2020 is National Arts in Education Week, and SGUSD will be celebrating online giving insider views of our amazing arts classes, integrated arts lessons, and featuring some of our teachers and students throughout the week.

Right now, more than ever, it is important that we raise our voices to share with the world how integral to education the arts are.

We want to hear from you! Create a video and tell the world what the arts means to you. Tell us about an arts teacher that impacted your life, or a class that inspired you.

National Arts in Education Week is a celebration recognizing the transformative power of the arts in education and takes place annually after the second Sunday of September. Passed by Congress in 2010 through House Resolution 275, the celebration is designated to bring attention to this cause for elected officials and educational decision makers across the country and to support equitable access to the arts for all students.
This year, more than ever, it is important to continue to send the message to all that the arts is and imperative part of a well rounded education. Though SGUSD continues to support a strong arts curriculum as an integral part of our students' experience in our district, many neighboring cities and states have drastically cut back in their arts programming. Let us all raise our voices and celebrate the transformative value of the arts!
