Glee Celebrates Arts Programs & Brittany Wishes You a Merrry XMas

While it's obvious that books, reading and writing help with education, I firmly believe that music and the arts do as well . . . That's why I"m so thrilled that Glee is doing so much to help school's music and arts programs!

Recently, Jayma Mays and Dot Marie Jones awarded a $10,000 check to one of the winning schools:

GLEE Stars Dot Marie Jones and Jayma Mays Present $10,000 Check to Culver City Middle School Arts Programs on Dec. 16

Los Angeles school is one of 73 national winners of “Glee Give A Note”
$1 million dollar campaign to help save at-risk music and arts programs

WHO: Glee stars Dot Marie Jones and Jayma Mays along with Twentieth Century Fox and the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) presented Culver City Middle School students and educators a check for $10,000 as part of the “Glee Give A Note” competition

WHAT: Culver City Middle School is one of 60 second place winners of the “Glee Give a Note” campaign to receive a $10,000 grant to support the school’s arts programs.  73 schools nationwide will receive grants ranging from $10,000 to $50,000

Students across the country harmonized, boogied and conducted their submissions in video form during an open call for entries that started three months ago.  In October, the eligible entries were posted on and put up for public vote for 30 days to determine the finalists.  A panel composed of NAfME members conducted a final vote to select the winning programs.  The list can be found at
Two-time winner, Glee was nominated for a third consecutive year for a Golden Globe® Award for Best Television Comedy.

Definitely give the website a look - some of the schools have some really great videos!!
