All parents, grandparents, and other interested parties are invited and encouraged to join and participate in the Arts Guild.The Arts Guild meets the second Tuesday of the month at 8:00 a.m. in the Middle School conference room. Please check calendar for any changes.
The Arts Guild supports all of USJ’s visual and performing arts, which includes Band, Music, Art, Theater and Drama Classes starting with Pre-K all the way through 12th grade. A steering committee administers the operational affairs of the Guild and assists the Fine Arts departments, both in financial resources and in volunteer support. Parent volunteers promote all theater productions, maintain the costume closet, sell tickets, work backstage, chaperone trips and have many other opportunities for hands-on involvement. Our funds help pay for theater productions and other fine arts events. We provide scholarships for summer enrichment and buy supplies and equipment for our Fine Arts teachers.
Our main financial support is through families who become Patron/Corporate Sponsors. Corporate Sponsors get great exposer. Each of our productions has an average attendance of 1,000 – 1,200 and all productions are advertised in the community at large. Arts Guild also maintains a high social media profile.
