Our very own Mrs. McCulloch was awarded the Sorenson Legacy Award for Excellence in Arts Education. This award recognizes excellence in arts education in Utah’s public schools.

The arts integrate social-emotional learning through making cultural connections. Research supports the claim that learning in the arts increases learning in other academic areas. As educators have felt pressure to give more and more attention to literacy and numeracy, the arts have been pushed to the background.

Through the Sorenson Legacy Foundation and the Utah State Board of Education, the Sorenson Legacy Awards for Excellence in Arts Education recognizes the essential nature of education in the arts for Utah’s students and distinguishes those educators who embrace the arts with excellence in their practice.

Congratulations Mrs. McCulloch and thank you for all you do for our students!
