Goal

Utilize funding as seed money for planning and executing a student body talent show, serving the high school and surrounding community.  

 

What will be done with my students

Under teacher supervision, student leaders will create a budget to put on a successful talent show, making fiscal decisions that will impact the outcome of running a successful performing arts event.

These student leaders will be organizing committees for marketing, concessions, t-shirt and merchandise sales, ticketing, program booklets, stage managing, equipment rental, and production. 

 

Benefits to my students

Students will learn about all of the aspects of putting together a successful performance event. This is an extremely important part of a performing arts education teaching future performers and, more importantly, future patrons of the arts. This education is critical to the future of performing arts institutions everywhere.

The more immediate benefit is building and supporting a positive school culture and community through the arts. 

 

Describe the Students

Music is one area that brings students of all abilities together. My classes represent the entire Countryside student body. ESE, ELL, AP, iSTEM, and average students all work together towards group success. Additionally, socioeconomic, ethnic, and cultural diversity are present across all of my performing arts classes.  

 

Budget Narrative

Event t-shirts will identify students working at the event. Wearing t-shirts and displaying posters will build awareness of the event in the weeks prior. Rental of additional lighting and sound equipment will reinforce the in-house systems and add to the production values of the event. Upgrading the ticketing and programs increases the perceived value of the experience. All of this contributes toward building our reputation as a school and community leader with excellence in the arts.
