ARTS is a core and integrated component across the entire curriculum.
CHOICE and customization of learning OPPORTUNITIES are essential.
|SCHOOL and students are key contributing members of the COMMUNITY.|
|CREATE a nurturing learning culture that is not limited to the school campus. As both an arts education and community center, it is important that this environment extends BEYOND the schools and the campus.|
The University of Maine Augusta has been proud to advise Snow Pond Center for the Arts on the purchase and installation of distance learning technology. Connecting elementary and high school age students across our rural state to resources previously beyond their reach will provide them with additional pathways to higher learning and future success. - - Dr. Rebecca Wyke, President, University of Maine at Augusta
