To the Editor:

The Fairfield Elementary School PTO would like to thank businesses for their generous contributions to the Art Squad program.

They helped make it possible to launch our program by reducing the initial fee for our families and students.

We are very thankful they joined us in this adventure.

Those business included CK Nails Salon, the Rotary Club of Reynoldsburg-Pickerington, SNAP! Performance Productions, Target Business Services and Tide Dry Cleaners.

The Art Squad is a partnership with Christine D'Epiro Abbott to provide an affordable and quality after-school program for elementary age students focused on the visual arts.

The pilot program has been a success and is currently on-going at Fairfield Elementary.

We are looking to grow and develop the program further by expanding it to other schools and opportunities.

The partnership between local businesses and the schools has been one of the reasons I love living in Pickerington.

Our local businesses are always there when we ask and I would like them to know that we truly appreciate all they do.
