I heard about this awesome program from Macy's and I wanted to share it out for all my teacher friends as I really do believe in the power of the arts in the classroom (I know, there is never enough time). But, if you can squeeze in some time, check out the details that were sent to me below:
Macy's has a really exciting program that we believe your students will enjoy. As part of its commitment to arts education, Macy's has created a brand new musical and its available now for teachers, royalty-free! Additionally, Macy’s will award $1,000 grants to 100 eligible schools nationwide to support their productions of the show!
“Yes, Virginia The Musical” is based on the true story of Virginia O'Hanlon, who wrote to the New York Sun in 1897 asking if Santa was real. The editor's famous response began, "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus," and has continued to inspire people since its publication.
Visit YesVirginiaMusical.com to download the script and select songs, view videos featuring celebrities and theater experts to spark ideas of your own and access everything else you need for a spectacular show!
Make sure to go check it all out on their website - OH! And they have also generously donated a $20 gift card to one lucky reader here at The Organized Classroom Blog as well! Whoo hoo! Check it out below and I would love to hear how you are able to integrate the arts into your curriculum in a comment (you get a bonus entry for that by the way). :)
Good luck to all who enter from Macy's and The Organized Classroom Blog!
