Dear Education Colleague,

Please join the U.S. Department of Education, Crayola, the National Art Education Association (NAEA), the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP), and other educators at the 2016 Champion Creatively Alive Children event in Washington, D.C.

What: Role of the Arts in a Well-Rounded Education

When: Tuesday, September 20, 2016
11:45 a.m.—2:00 p.m.

Where: Department of Education Auditorium
Lyndon Baines Johnson Building
400 Maryland Avenue, S.W.
Washington, D.C. 20202

This year’s theme will focus on how advocates can articulate that access to the arts in a well-rounded education is essential for all students. Education leaders have much to celebrate as the impact of the arts on student achievement and engagement is becoming more widely known and embraced.

Join us in making voices heard to ensure vibrant arts-infused learning for all students. Using “art is a way of learning,” we will collaboratively create concise, compelling advocacy messages and visuals. Be inspired by Shauna Kauffman, principal of Arnold Elementary in Maryland, and her students, who will share insights on how they advocate for arts-integration.

Hear how to link policy with practice based on compelling evidence from Libby Doggett, U.S. Department of Education Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy and Early Learning, Office of Elementary and Secondary Education. She will deliver insightful remarks on how access to arts in education is an equity and inclusion issue.

While this invitation-only event and lunch are free, pre-registration is required. Seating is limited, so please RSVP as soon as possible.

For Department of Education security, we need an accurate RSVP list. Attendees must bring a photo ID that matches their name on the list. If you have questions about this event or would like us to extend the invitation to a colleague, please contact Kristen Christman at 610-253-6272 ext. 4462.

RSVP by Wednesday, September 7
