My Students

Our school proudly represents an international community that speaks many languages and represents many cultures. Our multicultural mosaic gives our school a global perspective with high expectations for academic success. The students are highly motivated; the families of these children expect a guarantee of success. To assure the children's academic success, it is vital to provide only the best resources possible.

Students can only achieve if they have the necessary tools to do so.

The families of our children have sacrificed much to be in this country and the children hope to fulfill their families' dreams for success. For that reason, we try to bring the best resources to our students in the hopes of realizing high expectations that will lay a foundation for future opportunities.

My Project

In collaboration with their classroom teacher, Mrs. Engel, students will use symbols and maps to create an autobiographical identity map. Using various collage papers, water soluble colored pencils, and glue, students will create a work of art to be displayed as a paper quilt. The hole punchers will be used to create holes in our quilt. The students will use yarn to tie and join their works together.

In the style of artist Nicholas Hlobo, students' work will be joined to form a tapestry of unity.

Through connecting their unique individuality to showcase their similarities, students will come to the awareness that we are all connected, despite our differences.
