We need your help to finish matching a $75,000 grant!
We are over the moon that our Free Elementary School Tour is now part of the Professional Outreach Programs in Schools (POPS), administered by the Utah State Board of Education and partially funded by the Utah State Legislature.
This $75,000 grant makes it possible for our Free Elementary School Tour to serve elementary schools across the state during the full school year, rather than two months each fall. That means our current Tour of FLORA MEETS A BEE by Morag Shepherd will serve more than 10,000 students at 72 schools from Box Elder to Garfield County, from San Juan to Daggett County!
Principal Chris Whitaker, to her K-3 students at Foxboro Elementary: “I love Plan-B Theatre because not only do they have excellent actors, they are really great at teaching us things.”
POPS funding has also made it possible for us to create a new playwriting curriculum for grades K-6 in partnership with Julie Jensen and Youth Theatre at the U.
And we have launched an app to better serve teachers!
POPS funding also requires a dollar-for-dollar match. We have already raised $63,000. Our goal is to raise the remaining $12,000 between now and December 31.
