LET'S CELEBRATE ARTS FESTIVAL This series of "Let's Celebrate!" festivals reflects the LAUSD’s appreciation and understanding of the value of the arts and the importance of sharing our artistic gifts with our larger community. We are so thrilled that you are supporting these celebratory festivals that highlight what students have learned from their artistic exposure and instruction. To showcase their art publicly and be supported by friends, families, the community, professional artists, and celebrities who serve as role models is especially exciting! But don't let these celebratory festivals be the only time that you witness such student artistic expression! Make it a point to support arts in the schools in every way possible so that all
students can live an arts-rich and fulfilled life! Thank you for being a part of this special experience. See attachments for list of dates and events.
