As part of Glacier Valley's Community Thank You event honoring Art is Elementary and JAMM donors, student ambassadors, Chris San Nicolas, Riley John, and William Skinna, invite Ryan Aguilar from the Association of Alaska School Boards to add a piece to their class sculpture project.

Glacier Valley Elementary School would like to thank the Juneau community for supporting the school’s Art is Elementary and Juneau, Alaska Music Matters (JAMM) programs, which provide arts-integrated experiences to all K-5 students, as well as violin instruction to all of its kindergartners and first grade students.

In March, Glacier Valley hosted a Community Thank You Event to honor its community partners. At the event, teachers demonstrated lessons integrating the arts, student ambassadors gave tours of the artwork and intermediate students showcased their ballroom dance skills under the direction of artist-in-residence, Pat Belec. Also in attendance were Mayor Bruce Botelho, Representative Cathy Muñoz, representatives from Senator Egan’s and Senator Begich’s offices, City Assembly Member Karen Crane and Juneau School board members Phyllis Carlson, Kim Poole and Andi Story.

There is not enough room to list all the donors who have contributed to these programs but Glacier Valley would like to acknowledge donors $500 and above:

$1,000 and Above: Alaska State Council on the Arts, Association of Alaska School Boards, Classics for Kids, Elgee Rehfeld Mertz, Douglas-Dornan Foundation, Glacier Valley Parent Group, Great Blue Heron Fund, Juneau Community Foundation, Ron and Kathy Maas, Machamer Foundation, Marlintini’s Lounge, Kim Poole, Rasmuson Foundation, Sealaska Heritage Institute, Seven Colors Wind String Shop, Wells Fargo and Xia Guohua.

$500 - $999: Full Circle Music, Les Schwab, Cherish McCallum, NorthWind Architects, Pamela O’Brien, Ron’s Apothecary Shoppe, True North Federal Credit Union, Randy Wanamaker and Lynn Williams.

Sincerely,

Lorrie Heagy and the Glacier Valley Elementary School community
