Cards From the Heart

My students need materials to create cards for nonprofits like Meals on Wheels and DOROT, as well as their friends and family.

My Students

Our students are a bright group with diverse interests! As the library, we are at the heart of the school, and there's not a single student that doesn't pass through our world at least a few times a month. We are a STEM school, and we also offer an Agricultural Education program as well as many AP and dual credit college courses.

Our school is in a relatively rural town, and we are the only high school in the area.

This allows a community feeling to remain a top priority of our staff. It is this community spirit that sets us apart from many schools around us, and it's something we're very proud of.

My Project

Our compassionate makerspace needs a card station! This will allow students to create birthday cards for senior citizens who are part of the Meals on Wheels program in our area as well as seniors across the country from our school who are served by the DOROT program in New York City! These cards will be an invaluable way of students showing strangers that they are cared for and thought of.

This card station will also do double duty in our compassionate makerspace so that students ALWAYS have access to materials they can use to make cards for any loved one.

Not every student has learned or felt the power that a handmade card can have to make a difference in someone's day, especially given the more typical modes of communication today's students regularly use. The stamps, decorative scissors, and rainbow of stamp pads will inspire students to invest some time into an item that will last much longer than a text or snap and will help them make their project beautiful if they don't have card-making experience and, thus, don't know where to start.

We want our students to know that their small kind gestures can mean the world to others, and we want to ensure they can seize that opportunity in our makerspace. This card station will help students to have more ways to easily show others that they care.
