Music in Pictures program

December 15, 2014

Ms. Zuma Banks, President of the Rosemary Beach Foundation recognized district art teachers and schools  for their participation in the 2014-15 annual  Music in Pictures program, which is a year-long educational art initiative for all students in grades K-12.   The foundation presented a check for $7,000, which will be disseminated to the schools to offset any costs associated with the program.

Info: We collect pull-tabs at Freeport Middle School! The FMS Tabs collection started in 2009 as a Holocaust project to further teach our students about tolerance and other cultures. Our goal is to collect at least six million tabs. Once we reach our goal, all tabs will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House Charities Pop Tab Collections. We have received over 3,000,000 tabs so far. Please help us reach our goal!  Spread the word, we now have 3,500,000 tabs!

Send your tabs to:
