Music and The Arts
Music and the Arts are often the first programs cut when budgets are reduced. As part of its emphasis on the whole child, LBUSD remains committed to maintaining programs in music and the arts from Kindergarten to Twelfth Grade. In addition to correlations between music and success in academic subjects, participation in drama, music and art have intrinsic value that benefit students for a lifetime.
In addition to grants, $25,000 of SchoolPower’s Annual Gift to LBUSD supports music for K-8 students.
In addition to grants, $47,000 of SchoolPower’s Annual Gift to LBUSD supports performing and visual arts for middle and high school students.
