Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

Celebrate Black Teachers and Students

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

My school is a Title I school and needs more support and sponsors to make sure that it can improve academically.

Researches overwhelmingly demonstrate that parent involvement in children's learning is positively related to achievement.

Further, studies show that the more intensively parents are involved in their children's education, the more beneficial the achievement effects are. This holds for all types of parent involvement in children's learning and all types and ages of students.

As an art teacher, I believe in the power of art to connect and engage, and I created a monthly after-school art activity for parents and students.

The mean goal is to increase the participation of parents in the student's activities and build a more inclusive school environment.

Last year, we did an activity for Thanksgiving, and we had not only a great attendance but also excellent feedback from parents and students.

We will address different cultures through printmaking projects in a hands-on workshop each month.

My Project

The Art Community project aims to increase the parent's participation and involves the students in fun and hands-on activities. Each month's extracurricular art activity will invite parents and students to work together. The workshops will focus on different cultures, and they will explore a variety of printmaking techniques. By carving in block printing and painting on monotype plates, students and parents will learn to create geometric and organic shapes and combine them into various compositions. At each workshop, they will print on a roll of Japanese paper to create banners that will be hung around the school. They will create cards using the colored bright sheets to celebrate Black History Month, Women History Month and Haitian Heritage Month.

The initiative involves the school's Community Involvement specialists, and it is going to be part of the community activities

You will help improve the school climate and increase student engagement and their sense of belonging by donating to our project. The project wants to promote parents' involvement and build a strong relationship with the community. Students and parents will create artworks using innovative printmaking techniques, have fun, and build a community.
