Proposing Peace

My students need origami paper to create a collective community art instillation on campus to commemorate International Peace Day in September 2018.

  • $515 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My sixth grade students come from racially and economically diverse backgrounds. They are clever, creative, and ready to be academically challenged. They need someone who believes in their unlimited potential, someone who will teach, challenge and love them. Many of my students receive backpack food on the weekend, and our school also runs a food pantry for our families, 100% of my students receive free breakfast and lunch to aid in student participation and performance.

Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best.

They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day. They know students from their school have an excellent chance at attending college, and understand the sacrifices many of their parents have made for them to attend a magnet school with limited bus service. For many students, attendance at their school and hard work once they are here, is a ticket out of poverty for themselves and their families.

My Project

The origami paper will be used to create an art piece to celebrate and commemorate World Peace Day. Students will discuss, design, and create origami figures to honor the idea of peace.

“Community creation” is the goal of this peace project.

All our schools SAS students will be involved in creating and installing this artistic project. Collaboration between students, staff, parents and administration will be the focus during the creative process for this project.

This project will promote the skills of mindfulness and community involvement. Interpersonal connection will be promoted during all stages of this project, from conception, to creation, to installation.
