The goal of the Fine Arts Staff in Red Oak ISD is to support all students in achieving the district vision by providing students the opportunity to create, perform, interact, and expand their horizons through visual and performing arts. We believe arts education is an important piece of a well-balanced curriculum, and essential to our student success. Eastridge Elmentary students receive fine arts education in:
- Elementary Music
