Thank You Mayor Teske

Mayor of Lavon Donates $1000 to Edge Middle School Choir 

Just in time for Arts in Education Week (September 11 – 17, 2016), the award winning Edge Middle School choir from Community ISD accepted a $1,000 donation today from the Mayor of Lavon, Mr. Chuck Teske. The choir was formed last year under the direction of Mr. Tyler Lynn and the donation will go toward the purchase of competition uniforms.

Mayor Teske and his wife are huge supporters of Community ISD and have a daughter attending Edge Middle School. The mayor said he and his wife wanted to recognize the hard work of Mr. Lynn and contribute to the growth of the choir program.

National Arts in Education Week is a national celebration recognizing the transformative power of the arts in education. Designated by Congress in 2010 the celebration is designated to bring attention to this cause for elected officials and educational decision makers across the country and to support equitable access to the arts for all students.

The Choir students met Mr. Teske in front of the school this morning with a huge sign, personalized thank you notes, and even serenaded him with a song of appreciation.
