Programs | Arts Education
Dublin Partners in Education promotes Visual, Culinary and Performing Arts. We collaborate with elementary, middle and high school students to provide additional opportunities.
DPIE supported the culinary programs by connecting the Facebook “Likes Program” to Valley High and Dublin High School catering departments. All revenue received was presented to the culinary programs.
Thank you, WHOLE FOODS!
DPIE also provides donations in kind from local manufacturers. The culinary teams are frequently hired to cater our events. Conversely, the culinary team supported DPIE by providing desserts for all students at Fredericksen Elementary. Fredericksen won the “Spirit Award” at DPIE’s Walk4Education. The Walk4Education raised funds to support all of the schools within the Dublin Unified School District.
DPIE “Fiddle Club” program at Kolb Elementary School
The Fiddle Club program gives students a chance to explore playing the violin. Kolb Elementary feeds into Fallon Middle School, which has a new orchestra program. The goal is to provide a path into middle school orchestra.
The Fiddle Club meets twice a week for 45 minutes during March and April. Participating students are given a rental violin, a lesson book, a shoulder pad and rosin. Children learn basic note, rhythm and technique skills.
Be Loyal to your Soil
Dublin High School Poster Contest, “Be Loyal to your Soil”, was funded by StopWaste and Amador Valley Industries. Students were asked to submit a poster of original artwork illustrating their perception of the importance of composting. Each student also submitted an explanation of what their art represents and why they believe composting is important.
Six students were selected to the final round. All students received prize money for their entries. Each student also received a certificate, and a congratulatory handshake from Assemblywomen Catherine Baker! All six posters were mounted and are currently being displayed in our California State Capitol in Sacramento.
Congratulations to our artists!
