Keller ISD is excited to announce the inaugural year of an orchestra program in the District, The Keller ISD Strings Academy. The Academy will consist of two programs – a District-wide orchestra program open to all students in Kindergarten through 12th grade and a fourth grade violin program that will take place at eleven of Keller ISD’s elementary campuses.
“We are thrilled to bring these orchestra opportunities to students in Keller ISD,” said Kim Blann, Director of Fine Arts. “Numerous studies show the earlier you expose children to music, the more likely it is for them to have increased math scores, a stronger propensity towards learning foreign languages, as well as a healthy emotional outlet.”
Hurray! Texas shoppers get a break from state and local sales taxes on August 8-10, 2014 - the state's annual sales tax holiday. The law exempts most clothing and footwear priced under $100 from sales and use taxes, saving hoppers about $8 on every $100 they spend. Other tax-free items include school supplies under $100 and backpacks under $100 for elementary and secondary students.
