Hi friends and family!
My name is Cairo Waters, I am 15 years old and I am a sophomore at Duke Ellington School of the Arts. I'm in the Theatre department and we have a lot of exciting plays and opportunities coming up this year. Sadly because dcps does not pay for our arts program and our wonderful arts teachers, it's hard to create such grand artistry. Especially since we've just started coming back in school during the pandemic and we want to be as safe as possible while still being able to express ourselves.
So I would love and deeply appreciate if you could help me raise money for the Theatre department. Help my class and I continue to learn and create the art we love.
In the Theatre Department, students aren't just taught how to act. They are taught how to create the stories they want to see. They are given the tools to shape the world around them with their art. Ellington relies on the generosity of parents and donors to ensure that our students receive the highest level of pre-professional training and performance opportunities. Donations enable them to create sets, craft costumes, power technical capabilities, hire additional instructors, and fund classes with Master Acting Teachers like the renowned Professor Vera Katz.
