Published on Jun 9, 2016

Ms. Linda Lamy, Pre-K Teacher at Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. School has been awarded a grant from the Jamile A. Hulley Arts Foundation for the 2016-17 School Year.  The Jamie A. Hulley Arts Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide educational opportunities for young artists and early career professionals to expand their artistic talent and to pursue their dreams.  The grants awarded by the foundation help teachers to enhance the traditional curriculum through the arts while also supporting local artists and musicians brought in as visiting artists.

Ms. Lamy’s grant proposal includes the opportunity for local artist and Executive Director Anne Marie Williams of K La Rue Educational Arts in Motion to come in and work with both of MLK’s Pre-K classes, supporting their learning through performing arts that include song, music and movement.  The project will span most of the 2016-17 school year.  MLK is excited to work with the Jamie A. Hulley Arts Foundation and K La Rue to bring local performing artists into their Pre-K classrooms to support student learning!
