Enter to Win a Music & Arts Grant for Your School

Numerous studies have found that sharing a love of the arts enhances students’ brain development, creativity, and classroom involvement—and music and art curriculum has been shown to reduce students’ disciplinary issues and dropout rates.

Unfortunately, arts education at many schools has been reduced or eliminated because of budget cuts.

The California Casualty Music & Arts Grant was established to provide support for music and arts education in K-12 public schools. As a member of CEA, you can apply for a $250 grant for a music or art need at your school.

Touchdown for Waterbury High School Football

The football equipment necessary to ensure students’ safety can be expensive, and in a district like Waterbury, funding for sports programs is in short supply. “I fill out a lot of funding applications from all kinds of sources, and I often don’t hear back,” says Crosby High School Head Football Coach David Jurewicz, a technology education teacher at the school.

The Waterbury Teachers Association member was therefore thrilled today when, at what he thought was to be a routine staff meeting, he was surprised with a $1,000 athletic grant from California Casualty.

“This is going to help the team out tremendously,” says Jurewicz. “It will go a long way toward getting us the equipment we need.”
