Keep arts alive at Polaris
What could be better than tasting fine wines in a beautiful atmosphere during the lovey-dovey month of February? Not only can you socialize with other Polaris families, you will help promote our unique arts/science program.
On Saturday, Feb. 8, our community has an opportunity to attend one of my favorite events, Romancing the Vine. The Polaris wine tasting night benefits our school’s Art and Science Initiatives. Money raised through Romancing the Vine helps support our remarkable film studio where students create their own film and animation projects using state-of-the-art computer techniques. We know of no other public elementary school in Denver with facilities like ours. Please help us continue to support our studio. Proceeds from Romancing the Vine also help us bring guest speakers including award-winning documentary filmmakers, scientists, photographers, sound artists, musicians and composers to work directly with our exceptional students.
Unfortunately, the Polaris Art-Science integration program is operating at one-third the budget of the previous three years due to the expiration of the grant from the Colorado Council on the Arts. All of our funds now come from this annual wine tasting. So please, come raise a glass, eat great sushi, and have a fun, well-deserved night out. I hope to see you there! Click here to buy tickets now or to sponsor a teacher for $30. You can also purchase tickets at the door, but they cost a bit more. They will go for $50 a pop.
Thank you for celebrating with us and supporting arts integration!
