Arts Committee

The OVPTA Arts Committee supports efforts and programs that cultivate creative opportunities for all Olympic View students. We work in close collaboration with OV staff and PTA community. The OVPTA Arts Committee is guided by the school-wide arts plan, which aims to strengthen current arts programming, deepen student learning in and through the arts, and prepare students as critical, creative thinkers. Sarah Hartley and Sarah Wichlacz are the 2023-2024 co-leads of the OVPTA Arts Committee.
