Fine Arts Teachers Awarded Arts Council Northeast Grants

Two KISD Fine Arts teachers were awarded grants from the Northeast Arts Council at an awards luncheon last month.

Fossil Ridge High School Piano Teacher, Patrick Behringer, was awarded a grant to purchase an interactive piano lab for his students. Mr. Behringer's grant was matched by KISD Fine Arts.

Ridgeview Elementary Theatre Teacher, Stacie Martinsen's grant will be used to purchase and install curtains and drapes on their stage. The funds she received will be combined with a donation from the Ridgeview PTA.

Thanks to the generosity of the Arts Council Northeast, and the support of Ridgeview PTA and KISD Fine Arts, for providing funds to our fine arts programs!
