R.E.A.C.H.ing Out to
Congratulations George Key!
"George Key was just informed that one of our 4 student artwork submissions to the World Games Art Exhibition for the Special Olympic World Games LA 2015 was accepted to participate!!
The exhibition is being hosted by the Tierra del Sol Foundation and will be held during the Olympic Games on the campuses of UCLA and USC, July 25-August 2, 2015.
A huge thanks to the PYLUSD R.E.A.C.H. Foundation for their "reaching" out to George Key to make this possible! Debi Grant of R.E.A.C.H. heard about it and thought of us....and forwarded the information. Debi along with their leader Julie and team do such an amazing job supporting all our PYLUSD students! We are most fortunate! ~ and appreciative!"
Principal, George Key School
And thank you Debi for your role in sharing this opportunity with George Key and being a tireless advocate for the Arts on behalf of all our students. You are always going above and beyond to figure out opportunities for our district, contribute your artistic flare and help demonstrate the true value of the arts in our students' lives.
We are so appreciative of volunteers like you!
Some of the best student talent within our district was on display during the month of April. The pieces assembled for ArtWorks! were specially selected by our district art teachers. "Wow", "Amazing", "Awesome" are just some of the frequent comments shared with us. And we couldn't agree more.
This year, the student art sales raised more than $1,500 for the individual classrooms participating in our Event Sales Area. Thank you to all the volunteers and attendees for supporting this important event.
And an extra big THANK YOU to our PYLUSD Art Teachers who help promote creativity with their daily art instruction. We hope the many smiling faces in attendance and comments of admiration add to our words of gratitude.
(Additional event photos are available on our Facebook page and will be added to our website soon)
Special R.E.A.C.H. Supported ART Project
- Submitted by Mrs. Halliday -
“Crossing the Boundaries” is the title of the collaborative art project funded by the R.E.A.C.H. Foundation.
On Tuesday, February 24, Mrs. McDonald’s first grade class from Golden Elementary walked to Tuffree Middle School to spend the day exploring, experimenting and having fun while learning with Mrs. Halliday’s 8th grade Visual Arts students.
The students worked their way through eight stations of various activities. They created two extra-large paintings designed to be displayed at the PDA and PAC, practiced reading and measuring skills, experimented with painting techniques, learned how to manipulate Spirograph, and enjoyed visiting with their new buddies.
Both Mrs. Halliday and Mrs. McDonald agreed that this is the first of many collaborative projects to come. Thank you to the R.E.A.C.H. Foundation for supporting our students!
And we at the Foundation would like add we're so glad to be able to support this wonderful collaboration and thank Mrs. Halliday and Mrs. McDonald in return for their passion to make it happen!
Lots of great pictures and updates at our Facebook site.
