Living Rhythms Brings the West African Beat to Glendale Acres Elementary School
Submitted by Deborah Dowd
The staff and students of Glendale Acres Elementary School enjoyed a wonderful participatory assembly
with Living Rhythms on December 16, 2019. Living Rhythms shared with the Glendale Acres family
what they have learned during their studies in Africa. The school family is so appreciative to have been
given the opportunity to experience such a fun, exciting and educational assembly. The assembly was
funded through a matching grant with Glendale Acres PTA and The Arts Council for the Artists in
Schools Program. This project is supported by the Arts Council of Fayetteville/Cumberland County with
funds from the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural
Resources, Cumberland County Schools and private contributions.

Storyteller using hands for storyStoryteller David Novak Visits Glendale Acres Elementary 

Thanks to a matching “Artists in Schools” grant with Glendale Acres’ Parent Teacher Association and The Arts Council of Fayetteville/Cumberland County, students and staff were treated to a wonderful storytelling assembly on October 29.  This was the first time that David Novak had performed for the Fayetteville Arts Council and he truly enjoyed his experience at Glendale Acres.  David has performed across the country and he was a Master Storyteller for the Disney Institute at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.  He has written four picture books and made seven audio recordings.  His assembly entitled First Books in hands and strings was well received by the Glendale Acres Academy family and they are most grateful.

This project is supported by the Arts Council of Fayetteville/Cumberland County with funds from the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, Cumberland County Schools and private contributions.
