Portia Tate is one of 20 elementary and middle school principals from across the nation who has been selected by Crayola and the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) to receive a “Champion Creatively Alive Children” school grant. Portia Tate is principal of Rivercrest Elementary School in Bartlett, TN. Crayola and NAESP together selected 20 schools to receive the grants, which will fund innovative programs aimed at building creative capacity school-wide.
The Champion Creatively Alive Children grants are intended to help schools nurture children’s creativity and inspire other schools to do the same. Rivercrest Elementary received a $2,500 monetary grant and $1,000 worth of Crayola products. Mrs. Tate will share outcomes from their program via NAESP’s website and a special Principal magazine supplement to help other principals develop promising practices related to arts in education.
