Referendum At Work
The Pinellas County Schools Referendum money has been crucial to the success of the Visual and Performing Arts Program here at Mildred Helms. The following are a few examples how the referendum has impacted the program. computer-made student art
The Referendum money has also supplied us with a subscription to Scholastic Arts magazine where students can read about current and past artist, artworks, and art careers. This keeps the students up to date and inspires them to further their interest in the arts.
The referendum funds were also used to purchase classroom instruments including Djembe drums, xylophones, bass bars, tambourines, hand bells and many smaller percussions instruments. In addition each music teacher received an iPad that allows students to interact with various music applications in conjunction with the Smartboard.
