Thanks for Sharing the LOVE with SLArts!

On March 30, 2017 our community raised $35,000 for our school during Love UT, Give UT, the Community Foundation of Utah's 24-hour online giving event. Thanks to our generous Challenge Grant donors and our 477 "unique donors" we won First Place in our "category" where we engaged in friendly competition with other schools and arts & culture organizations -- and we look forward to receiving $5,000 in prize money! The funds raised during Love UT, Give UT are supporting our Arts Program, covering students on Fee Waivers and supporting our teachers and classrooms. This is important private funding that helps us offer our unique program -- we couldn't do it without our community of parents, grandparents, extended family and friends -- Thank you!
