Danville Schools Receive Grant from Delta Dental and Fund for the Arts
Elementary students to experience puppet show

DANVILLE, KY (February 15,  2018) — Danville Independent Schools received a grant for $1,376 from the Fund for the Arts and Delta Dental of Kentucky to enhance its arts education program for students.

The grant is a part of the Delta Dental Making Smiles Happen Arts in Education Initiative, a program that increases and reinforces opportunities for students across all grade levels statewide to have access to the arts as a critical component of their overall educational experience. 

The grant will fund a professional puppetry performance for all second grade, first grade, kindergarten, and afternoon preschool students. More than 470 students will experience Rage-O-Saurus Rex, an interactive puppet show performed by the Squallis Puppeteers. The puppet show will be February 27th at the Gravely Hall Performing Arts Center.

“Providing quality arts programming to our students stands as a goal at Danville Schools.” said Danville Schools Superintendent, Keith Look. “With the help of Delta Dental, our youngest students will have a first-hand experience with something normally they only read or watch on TV.”
