The Sumter School District REACH program is off to an amazing start!  This program features an astounding array of talent from our district’s students deemed talented and gifted in the areas of visual arts, choral music, and theatre.  Students attending are currently rising 3rd through 12th graders, and this year’s enrollment is the largest yet with an average of 185 students attending daily.

Students in the REACH program are chosen through an intensive screening process and meet a total of 15 days, one Saturday each in the months of March, April, and May and the first three weeks in June.  All students work toward a common goal of expanding their knowledge and expertise in their chosen art area, often going over and beyond their comfort zones when doing so.

The public is invited to attend the REACH Summer Arts 2017 Showcase on Wednesday, June 21 at Crestwood High School’s Fine Arts Center.  The art exhibit will open at 5:00 PM followed by a choral performance and theatre production at 6:00 PM.  This event is free to the public and will be showstopper you do not want to miss!
