Recently, Lower Elementary teacher, Lisa Stolzer, visited Cuba and saw first-hand that art supplies are very limited to children who want to participate in art classes at the Museo de Bellas Artes. To encourage creativity and opportunity for art classes for Cuban children, the Parent Association Community Service committee worked with the Elementary classes to collect quality art supplies for these students. Thank you to all who donated!
Ms. Stolzer reported that “the art supplies have arrived in Cuba and they are absolutely bowled over by all of the bounty they’ve received! So many of the things that were sent are difficult and/or expensive to find in Cuba. They are thrilled.” The plan is to now conduct a joint art project with the Cuban students. Stay tuned!
