Hazelwood Early Childhood (HEC) fit the mold and was rewarded for doing so.
Springboard, the St. Louis region’s largest provider of in-school arts and cultural integration and enrichment programs, was looking for ways to expand its available programming options to younger audiences from ages, three to five.
Hazelwood School District (HSD) said it is always looking for ways to further educate students and have worked with Springboard for several years. The two entities came together and the end result was a $5,000 for arts.
Springboard and HEC developed a pilot program targeting 3 to 5 years olds and its organizational music ensemble will perform at HSD Early Childhood Education’s family picnic on May 17, 2013. Artists will perform West African song, dance and culture for students and families.
