2015/16 was a great year for FOTA. We made numerous grants including the purchases of a digital camera and guitars, funding for a playwrights workshop, a fine arts summer program, and a ukulele melee, to name but a few. Our annual major fundraiser, Melody Miles Road Race, was one of our best ever (in spite of the heat on the day) and we have recruited some great new board members. We pass on our thanks to Emily Hayden who has stepped down as president after many successful and inspirational years and we welcome our new president Nicci Roebuck.
We are now open to new grant requests for the new school year. We would love to hear ideas to make the arts accessible and available to more students and deepen the experience of the arts to all students in our district.
We are always looking for new members to join us. Please contact us or come along to one of our meetings; held in the high school library, typically on the third Thursday of the month.
