SPARK! Arts Ignite Learning
Recap of 2016-2017 in MCPS

What an amazing school year this has been! Here are a few exciting facts about SPARK!'s work in Missoula County Public Schools this year.
  • Missoula County Public School Students have accessed over 1,000 additional hours of learning through and about the arts!
  • There have been 80 Arts Residencies throughout all 12 K-8 Schools.
  • All K-8 MCPS Teachers were able to train in arts integration.
According to Mindy, a Middle School Teacher at MCPS, "Students move their bodies, push their limits, open their minds, and understand curriculum in a way that matters more."

Susan, an Elementary Principal here at MCPS said, "This {residency with Structured Learning Programs at Lewis and Clark} is an example of true collaboration with IB units of study. This has not been an easy task. The work you are doing is exceptional. Students are engaged and benefit from this well - planned experience."

SPARK! Arts Ignite would like to thank all of our Teaching Artists, Classroom Teachers, School Principals, Donors, Sponsors, and everyone at MCPS who has made the continued success of this program a reality. We would also like to again thank parents, community members, and students that make this all possible. We are thrilled to begin planning for next year!
