Honor your Child's Teacher with a Donation!



If music, art or drama experiences were particularly meaningful to your child this year, perhaps you would like to recognize the teacher(s) responsible for those experiences by making a donation to Friends of Music & the Arts in that teacher's name.  Donations in any amount are welcome, and will be acknowledged to the honored teacher with a personal note from FMA.
