Love for Mom is Growing!

My students need flower pots for our mother's day project. Students will get to design and paint their flower pot, and then take it home for mom on mother's day!

My Students

Hello Everyone! I am a first year art teacher in the Arkansas Delta. My students have mastered the elements of art, completed projects infused with literacy, and continue to see their art projects as a way to brighten their own lives and the lives of everyone around them!

The mission of (DELA) Academy is to empower our students with the knowledge, skills, and character traits that will enable them to succeed in the nation's finest secondary schools and colleges and to pursue a life of value, joy, and integrity.

DELA was founded in 2009 and is the first elementary school in the KIPP Delta Public Schools network. DELA currently serves approximately 410 students in Pre-Kindergarten through 4th grades, 91% of which qualify for free or reduced lunch. Though many of my students are growing up facing rural poverty, they use their artistic abilities to brighten their community each and every day. Please help us make this project happen!

My Project

One thing I can tangibly feel every day at school is my student's love for the people in their lives, especially their families and moms in particular. This Mother's Day, I hope my students will have the chance to design and then paint a mini terra cotta flower pot. Then we will have dads from our community come in and help students fill their decorated flower pots with live flowers. Students will then take their flower pots home to give to their moms for Mother's Day.

My students will be able to see their artistic abilities and artwork as a way to make the people around them happy.

I can already see the excitement on my students' faces as they board the buses with special treats for mom.
