My Students

My school has around 500 students who love to learn and engage through creative hands-on activities. This school is a Title I campus, and many school families may not have access to resources or extracurricular activities. On this campus, we love to put on events that encourage family engagement and help to build community partnership.

We are part of a campus that celebrates community.

Our students love coming to these events because this allows them to participate in activities that are creative and outside the content of the curriculum. Our students are energetic, eager learners who seldom have the opportunity to enjoy fun leisure activities with their families such as going to the movies, rollerskating, creating Make a Wish pottery, and visiting museums. We would love to provide our students and their families with these exciting opportunities.

My Project

Family craft night is a school community event to encourage family participation in a school setting. The goal is to develop relationships with the community as partners in their child's education.

Our school hopes to foster these connections through crafts and social engagement.

In previous years, the community has shown support by actively participating with enthusiasm and expressing interest in future events. Our goal is to continue to build this excitement through new activities and opportunities.

We need games, sensory dough, a Magnetic Designer and other materials. The materials will be used to promote family engagement in creative ways. The parents and students get to interact with others while having fun creating exciting new projects!
