Whether they are acting on stage or playing a musical instrument, the Sevastopol Music, Art, and Theater Guild makes sure students have everything they need to succeed. A part of the Sevastopol Education Association, the MAT Guild fundraises all school year long and donates everything they make right back to the classrooms to buy supplies and fund programming opportunities. MAT member Julie Haen says the school’s band program is just one example of where their money goes to work.
Fifth-grader Logan Simon plays the tenor saxophone in the school’s band and appreciates everything MAT does for him and his classmates. It is why he says he will even have a table at this weekend’s Arts and Crafts Fair with all the money he makes going back to the organization.
The Arts and Crafts Fair benefiting Sevastopol MAT is this Sunday from 9 a.m to 3 p.m. in the elementary school gym.
