Fourth-Graders Raise Money for Kyrene Family Resource Center
Fourth-grade students from four Kyrene School District elementary schools recently participated in an art project that aimed to spread a positive attitude in their school community and raise money for the Kyrene Family Resource Center.
According to the Ahwatukee Foothills News, the art project was called Peace & Love in Our Community, and the schools that participated were Kyrene de Kyrene del Cielo Elementary School, Kyrene de la Estrella Elementary School, Kyrene de la Paloma Elementary School and Kyrene Traditional Academy – Sureño Campus.
The students made trading cards that they could trade amongst themselves, and their artwork was also turned into pendants that parents could purchase. About $1,300 was raised through the sale of the pendants and donated to the family center, the newspaper said.
“I think kids get excited about learning and making art, and I think it makes a bigger impact when they can put their work into action,” teacher and program coordinator Cassidy Parker-Anders told the newspaper. “They really get to see how a project like this can really make a difference right in their own community.”
