We are excited to announce that H.B.duPont PTA in the Red Clay school district has been named a recipient of the 2017 Mary Lou Anderson ArtsEd grant. H.B duPont will receive $1,000.00 from National PTA to support their arts projects during the 2017-2018 school year.
du Pont’s 2017-2018 Proposed Project: H.B. du Pont Meadowood Warriors Empty Bowls Family Arts Project. 204 students will create pottery in their art class, that will be decorated during a family art night (48 families). These bowls will then be used to support the local food pantry.
The National PTA Mary Lou Anderson Arts Enhancement Grant provides $1,000 in matching funds to support local PTA arts projects within their school community. Funded projects will increase access to learning opportunities in the literary, media, visual and/or performing arts for at-risk or underserved audiences. Arts projects will also actively engage families and community partners to strengthen family-school partnerships. Eligible applicants must be a PTA in good standing, as determined by the State PTA.

Congratulations H.B. duPont!!! Another shining example of the great things happening in our schools!!
