The research is clear; Students learn in different ways, and moving the material from the page to the stage grabs them, making them more excited about learning even in the classroom.  The Grand By Day series has served more than 150,000 students in the 17 North Central Wisconsin counties over the past five years.  Participants include home schoolers, public, private and parochial schools in over 50 communities.

The goals of the Performing Arts Foundation and the Grand By Day series are:

- To present the finest in professional touring performing arts events, in a variety of disciplines, for the benefit of the arts and the community
- To provide art experiences for youth, within and enhancing school curriculum and activities
- To serve as a resource to community activities involving the performing arts
- To improve the understanding of and participation in the arts among community members

Benefits of the Arts in Education are clear and comprehensive:

- The arts are important and connect to rigorous academic subjects; they have far-reaching potential for student success
- The arts are essential to the intellectual, emotional, physical and social development of all students
- The arts provide creative and imaginative learning, critical thinking opportunities, and production and performance experiences - Key ingredients to meaningful learning
- High risk students are motivated and challenged to learn in and through the arts
- Arts education prepares students for the work force



Ensuring Access to the Arts

Because of generous grants from the Wisconsin Arts Board, Community Foundation Arts Grants, B. A. and Esther Greenheck Foundation, Wisconsin Public Service, 3M, and Janke Book Store, we are able to keep the Grand By Day student ticket prices at $5.00.  However, our commitment that these events are part of a complete education would ring false if we allowed any student to the left behind.  Hence, our outreach program, Access to the Arts, admitting every studen in the class regardless of ability to pay.  When a teacher certifies that a family can't afford a ticket, we cover that cost, no names required, no questions asked.  At The Grand, the arts are for everyone.
