Principal's Message-Reading Primary School

December 2019


Encore is a group of teachers and parents who work to encourage the arts in Reading schools.  As a member of the group, we have hosted visual art shows, talent shows, parents night out events, and holiday art events.  Our goal is to cultivate an interest in the various fields of art. 


To add to our efforts, we recently received a grant from the Ohio Arts Council to produce a musical about the history of our community.  The grant has allowed us to hire a theatrical writer and director to produce a fifth-grade/sixth-grade show. We have completed auditions and are currently working on the script.  Starting in January, we will begin rehearsing and designing the set, with a planned date of performing the show in March. We are excited about this opportunity to involve students in a performing arts project and highlight the importance of art in education. 


If you have an interest in being a part of Encore or simply want to help with the production of our musical, please contact me at 842-5266.  We are always looking for individuals who share our vision of encouraging art and who want to help.
