“McFarland was very successful, and attracted thousands of participants each year, so developing this model was a challenge,” Gold said. “But we thought that introducing new elements of creativity, including the arts of music and performing, and giving our students and teachers more creative involvement would help engage more people. The response was overwhelmingly positive.” Is, and we look forward to seeing what we do here.
