I have been lucky to be involved with the music dept at Crittenden for the past several years, taking pictures for them. The music teachers at the school are real professionals and bring a lot of creativity to the students with choral groups, choirs, bands, orchestras and at years end a musical play.... Thanks Fidelity, they really needed the help... Know the students will benefit from it.

Oh I so wish I had the funds to make donations like this to local school programs. I would be thrilled by the feeling of helping I'm sure.

Our son is enrolled in Ms Miyata's program and we see first-hand the passion and skill she and her co-workers bring to the program. Congratulations on the grant!

This is Great! Thank you Fidelity! It is wonderful to have music and arts supported in our schools in this time when all of the tax dollars are focused on STEM (science, technology, engineering mathematics).
But, I do have to say that I don't like these focused donations where a company chooses a particular school to play favorites with. Google recently gave a big grant to Huff as well. I would prefer that they donate to the district and let them distribute the funding where it is needed. Or to our wonderful Mountain View Educational Foundation, that has been providing the music, arts and sports funding for years.
