PS/IS 41 is an inner-city school whose predominantly single-parent families have a median income of less than $23,000. Our Arts Coordinator has developed an intensive arts-based program over the last 7 years that has transformed this poor performing school into a highly respected arts-centered school, one that other districts and schools are trying to emulate. Along the way, reading and math scores have rebounded. As part of its next big leap, we have introduced a basic Architecture program as a joint venture between the art and math departments. We have an immediate need for 90 Safety compasses so that we can begin teaching the basic concepts of architecturally significant shapes to the lower grades by having the children draw various components of their environment that involve circles. The compasses would be usable by multiple classes at the same time and could be reused in future years.
