CLASSEN SAS SHOWCASE
For the last several years Classen School of Advanced Studies (located at 18th & Classen Blvd. in Oklahoma City) has held a fundraiser that has showcased some of the schools best talent in the performing and visual arts. This year, OKC Community is joining in a big way to serve and financially support the showcase efforts and together we are hoping to maximize the fundraising potential and to highlight the amazing talent of these students on a larger scale in our community. As a city we must show our students that we support and believe in them! This is a great opportunity love your schools.
Classen SAS is an OKC Public School for 6th-12th grade students. One of the unique features of the school is that over half of the student body is involved in some form of Fine Arts (vocal performance, band/ orchestra, dance, drama, visual arts, photography, etc). Therefore, a significant portion of the student body will participate in this event. Most of us are familiar with the funding crises that OKC Public Schools is facing. Many of the budget dollars needed to fund fine arts, athletics, and other extra curricular programs are now up to the teachers and students to raise funds in order to keep the programs going.
We believe this event can make a significant impact in raising the necessary funds needed to operate and expand the incredible fine arts departmentas 100% of ticket sales is going to Classen SAS Fine Arts program. Additionally, we hope the support from our city and people like you will give the teachers and the students the boost they need to keep dreaming and making the future of our city better!
