The Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art held a contest for students this October called, “You Make It Happen.” Students were to create works of art that reflected something that they learned about the American Southwest from social studies or history. They had to interpret this information in the form of a unique or original piece of art. Two of our students from Intermediate East won 2nd and 3rd place in the contest for their ceramic tile paintings of Native Americans. They worked after school for several weeks to complete this assignment. Congratulations to these two talented young men:
2nd Place: Kevin Rostam, 5th Grade, Avon Intermediate School East
3rd Place: Darin Rostam, 5th Grade, Avon Intermediate School East
AvonEducation Foundation awards $1265.98 to Avon teachers.
Congratulationsto all six AEF " Fast Track" grant recipients. FastTrack grants are for classroom supplies or educational program support ofless than $250 and constitute the first round of grants approved by the Avon Education Foundation (AEF) during each semester. Second round "traditional" grants may be for as much as $3000 per applicant and are currently under review by the AEF grants committee. Certified staff in all 12 schools may apply. In some cases, one award winner is reported but multiple buildings benefit. For example, Maple Elementary's Ms. Samide is listed, but books purchased for the new Parent Book Club may benefit all elementary schools and parents who join the book club. Pictured here is Mr. Leake (Maple Elementary) with his students, just after telling them about the great books that would be purchased for them using AEF grant money. They were so excited they stood up and clapped! Other grant winners include Avon High School's Mr. Osterman, Ms. Garland and Mrs. Rohrbach and AIS East's Ms. Fluharty.
AEF connects private support to public education needs in the Avon community and is uniqueas the only non-profit (501c3) organization supporting academic needs in all 12 of Avon's public schools. This is only possible throughtax-deductible donations to AEF. Last year the Avon Education Foundation provided $66,257 in grant and educational support to Avon schools. However, due to budget cuts, requests for assistance are already up this year which means meeting those needs, requests, and goals will only be possible with the help of others. Tax-deductible donations to AEF are always welcome at 7203 E. US Hwy 36, Avon IN, 46123, are much appreciated, and will benefit literally thousands of Avon's public school children. Thank you!
