Arts in Education Week
Randolph School is proud to celebrate National Arts in Education Week, September 13 - 17, with a performance and special events that are open to the community. At Randolph, we believe a strong arts program is an essential part of a complete education. Our program engages students in grades K-12 in both producing and experiencing the arts. During National Arts in Education Week, we share this important message with friends, family, and communities. Proceeds from all events benefit the visual and performing arts programs at Randolph School, a 501 (c)(3) organization.
