My Students

We are a culturally diverse, rural eighth through twelfth grade high school. Our school has embraced the concept of a flex-mod schedule. Students can fit anywhere from six to eight classes into their schedule allowing more time for AP classes, college-credit classes, electives and CTE (career and technical education) courses. Students are given at least four hours personal learning time (PLT) throughout the week which they can use as they choose to complete homework, work in groups with their peers or meet with teachers during "office hours."

We have high expectations for our students meaning we want them to leave high school fully prepared for whatever they have chosen, whether it be college, vocational or straight into a career field.

Our Core Beliefs and Mission statement for our school is “My Plan My Future”.

My Project

Students need the arts today more than ever as a forum for safe expression, communication, exploration, imagination and as an avenue for cultural and historical understanding. More and more schools are starting to bring lessons based upon Mindfulness to their students as a way to help students increase focus and self-control while improving academic performance and overall well-being. I would like to incorporate mindfulness and the arts into a creative process where students are able to create a meaningful and intentional piece of art. Students will be walked through a lesson where they are asked to reflect and thoughtfully answer a series of questions which will guide them to the discovery of a Word that reminds them what's important. Students will then be able to share their word with others and its importance to them.

I would like my students to create a tangible reminder of their hopes and dreams in the form of a MyIntent bracelet as a daily reminder to LIVE THEIR WORD!

They will use the My Intent Maker Kits, stamps, stamping base, materials and tools to create their personal piece of art by stamping their "Word" onto the blank tokens. As an extension of this project students will be able to use the skills they have mastered stamping their MyIntent bracelet to design and create other works of art using the additional threads, blanks and resource book provided by this project.
