We are participating in a wonderful event that includes our students in 5th and 6th grade working with the Shoe Factory Artists from here in Pueblo to create a portrait of their hero. The project is called the Heroes If8 project. They are also going to be creating a writing piece and we have Judge Victor Reyes and Amy King who have been working with the Siddhartha School in India. Amy and Victor are going to be working with our kiddos in Writing. We had our kickoff assembly about a week ago where we received a message from and sent a message to the kids at the Siddhartha school. I am attaching more information about the project for you to read about. (see below) This is an exciting way to bring art into our school, provide a real world experience and purpose for writing, teach our students how to give back as the art will be auctioned off after the traveling art exhibit, and help them become aware of the world around them.
