Principal Supplement September/October 2018: Champion Creatively Alive Children

Recognizing the importance of arts education is essential to NAESP’s commitment to fostering creativity in schools. This year, NAESP and Crayola have once again teamed up to develop a special supplement to Principal, as part of a mission to support arts-infused education. In it you’ll find profiles of schools across the country awarded arts education grants, and learn how they invested in their students’ capacity for creativity. Visit the Champion Creatively Alive Children page to learn more about these efforts and how they could help your school through grants and free professional development.
