SHARING OUR HISTORY
The Regional Arts Center & Perot Theater, downtown Texarkana
A collaborative community history & art public tour project

Our 3rd Graders rocked this project last Friday!
They received history instruction, specifically local history, as well as public speaking practice, preparation, and application;
and they also received an understanding of public service in a manner that could not have been reached if they hadn’t performed this service themselves.
The tour was given twice throughout the day. Combined, roughly 60 community members joined.

Self-portraits that were created in Art class, with the help of Mrs. McCarley,
were also on display during the tour!

The class was gifted an original light bulb of the theater as a token of appreciation for their public service. So cool!
