You may have heard of a grant and opportunities at Armstrong Elementary provided by CULTIVAR: Communities Uplifting Learners Through Imagination and Vibrant Artistic Reflections. CULTIVAR is a five-year grant that partners with Texas A&M San Antonio and the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts and is currently in year three. With these partnerships, teachers and administrators take part in integrating arts-based and culturally responsive education throughout the school. This program focuses on providing arts-based instructional materials, presenting professional development for South San educators, and creating a community for South San parents to participate in art experiences. South San Antonio ISD is pleased to branch this program out to select educators at the other 7 elementary schools in the district.
