My name is Desirée Vogt, and I am so excited to serve as the President of Friends of the Arts for this upcoming 2020-21 school year. I have been volunteering for Friends of the Arts for three years, and I cannot wait to jump back in this year.
Friends of the Arts is an organization of parents who help support and promote our artists and art teachers throughout the season. Last year we were wowed with a jam-packed season including musical performances, twelve plays, award-winning dance competitions, choruses and improv acts, just to name a few. We are even more excited about the upcoming year, kicked off with another excellent Drama Bootcamp, and our fourth annual 72-Hour Play. The dance team is already prepping for another great year, and music lessons are being offered in-person and virtually to make sure all of our students have an opportunity to participate. We have so many things to look forward to this year.
Having said that, there are many unknowns ahead of us. We are hoping to be able to host audiences, but we have no guarantees. We are hoping for events, but many things are still up in the air.
So, to help Mount Vernon families, Friends of the Arts is waving all membership fees for the 20/21 school year. We are asking our community to sign up to become members. Signing up for your free membership will get you a Friends of the Arts 20/21 car decal and an exclusive monthly newsletter, letting you know about upcoming events. Please sign up for Friends of the Arts today.
If you would like to donate money, that would be wonderful. We are offering a tax-deductible donation option on our sign-up form. This year we will be using these funds to improve our sound system on the Lower Campus and continue to support our artist community. We are also using this year to build up our fund to support future travel and art opportunities. This fund will allow the art department to be more flexible when last-minute opportunities present themselves. So please sign up and celebrate the 20/21 season with us.
Thank you for your support. I am so looking forward to meeting each of you,
