More students will be able to take part in the Covington Elementary School Music Program, thanks to a $250 Music and Arts Grant from California Casualty. The award was presented this week by California Casualty Field Marketing Manager Michelle Hawkins.
Applicant and music teacher Jennifer Wahl is excited that the grant will enable her to introduce more kids to music enrichment, which leads to higher than average abilities in creative thinking, social interactions and critical thinking.
Covington Elementary is one of 17 Washington schools receiving the grants, which ranged from $100 to $500, for a total of $5,300.
The Music and Arts Grant program was created this year to assist schools in bringing artistic programs into the classroom.
