Ten New Jersey schools are getting financial support for creative arts programs, thanks to a Music and Arts Grant from California Casualty!

The grants will enable the following schools to purchase & repair instruments, fund music & art curriculum programs and secure much needed art supplies.

  • Florence Avenue School (Irvington)
  • Haskell School (Haskell)
  • Memorial High School (West New York)
  • Frank Napier School of Technology (Paterson)
  • Clifton Avenue Grade school (Lakewood)
  • Grant School (South Plainfield)
  • John Adams Elementary School (North Brunswick)
  • Manchester Township High School (Manchester)
  • Thomas Paine Elementary School (Cherry Hill)
  • Smalley School (Bound Brook)

These ten New Jersey schools are among 146 public schools in 31 states receiving a total of $36,500.  

Arts and music programs have long been shown to enhance students’ critical thinking skills and creativity and improve their concentration, motivation and confidence. With COVID-19 wreaking havoc on communities and schools, the arts are playing an even more critical role in helping children express themselves, connect with each other, process stress, and stay engaged in their new virtual learning environment.

California Casualty’s Music and Arts Grants will give more students a chance to learn music, act in a school play, or hone their artistic talents – virtually or in-person – throughout the 2020-2021 academic year.

“Students love to showcase their creativity, and helping educators keep music and arts in the forefront of every-day learning is absolutely the right thing for us to do,” said California Casualty Assistant Vice President Brian Goodman.
