Enjoy these highlights!
“The grant from the Burbank Arts for All Foundation awarded to Miller Elementary School allowed for the purchase of a digital piano. It is exciting to see the impact this purchase has had already at our school as it has been the catalyst for our plans to create an audio/video area for teachers and students. I look forward to seeing and hearing the many ways in which the digital piano will be used to enhance the theatre arts and music programs as well as the incorporation of music into lessons for our English Language Learner students at Miller.”
-Judy Hession, Miller Elementary Principal
“Thanks to the Burbank Arts for All Foundation, my classroom has a variety of materials that help me to shape a meaningful and interesting arts education for my students. I feel so supported and that what I am doing for these kids isn’t ‘just a class.’ It is a meaningful class that helps students to think creatively, independently, and to work hard.”
-Lauren Masters, JBHS Visual Arts Teacher
“Thank you so much for donating a grant for us to purchase percussion instruments. That was so generous for you to do for us. When Ms. Buresch first told we all ‘jumped for joy.’ The feeling was/is so grateful, like when you get extra guacamole for tacos, but with percussion.”
-Ashley M, Luther Burbank Middle School Band Student
“Any and every marching band performance requires the drumline to be polished…this new equipment made it so much easier for the drumline to play better, which trickled down to the rest of the marching band.”
-Taylor Arakelian, JBHS Director of Bands
