Susan Palmer, BFA's Drama Teacher, has had her Arts Integration work at BFA featured in both the (pg. 4) and (pg. 3) issues of the Agency of Education’s Arts Newsletter, linked above.
Maple Run Unified School District is focusing on more advanced arts integration with all of our schools by bringing drama down from BFA to the elementary schools. Details are being worked out, but we are hopeful that each of the elementary schools will have an opportunity for more advanced art exposure through a program similar to Artist in Residence.
Unification has allowed us to share programs such as this. When elementary students have more exposure to the arts there are many positive results. This will also eventually strengthen the BFA Arts program as more students enter the high school with experience in the arts.
