The Memory Project

by: LINDY WIESMANN

The Memory Project is a charitable nonprofit organization that invites art teachers, art students, and solo artists to help cultivate global kindness by creating portraits for children around the world who have faced substantial challenges, such as violence, war, extreme poverty, neglect, and loss of parents. The participants create these portraits to help children feel valued and important, to know that many people care about their well-being, and to provide a special childhood memory in the future. Since 2004 the Memory Project has created more than 130,000 portraits for children in 47 countries. I am honored to announce that our very own McFarland Art Students will be crafting portraits for the Memory Project! In order to be involved in the program there is a cost of $15 for each portrait. I hope you will consider sponsoring one of the portraits for this amazing opportunity and international movement.

Book, Books, Books

by: Alison Smith

Research shows that having access to books makes students better readers. My goal is to create an engaging classroom library where books fly off the shelf. Fostering student input and searching the latest trends will help create a library of books that appeal to today's high school students. Please help me by contributing funds to purchase books for my expanding classroom library.

It Takes A Village to Educate: Together With Tanongou

by: ANGELA BAZAN

The World Geography class at McFarland High School has been learning about the village of Tanongou, in Benin, Africa. We are working to raise $3000 to support education in the village by sponsoring scholarships for students to attend school and learn a skill. We are also hoping to help fund the cost of birth certificates so students may continue their education. In Benin, students must take a test after 6th grade to be admitted to the next level. In order to take the test, they need a birth certificate, or they are not allowed to continue their education. As many are born in the village, a birth certificate is costly to obtain and travel to the city is difficult. We know that education is the key to success, and we are grateful for the education that we have. Please help us to spread that knowledge around the world- It truly takes a village to help another!

We Can Read It!

by: MARIA MARKING

I remember years ago, sitting on a classroom carpet with my kindergarten teacher, when it happened. My teacher had taught us strategies, tips and tricks and with her guidance and support from home, suddenly reading "clicked" for me! There on that carpet my strategies for reading came to life! I couldn't wait to get home to show my family! I am inspired by Kelly Livingston's "Bringing Families Together with Books and More!" project, and I know that her proposal could benefit the children of my kindergarten families! Children need so much exposure to text and most importantly text they are able to read fluently and independently. This means that having the appropriate books available for our young learners and their families is so important! Throughout the school year, I have sent home leveled book bags with each of my kindergarten readers! The books are read with families in the evening and the bags and books come back the next day. We have certainly worked hard to "grow readers"! This upcoming school year I will be adding a new component to our bags! A "Readers Response" for our kinder readers and families to reflect on what they have read. The response will be a bubblegum thought, "what stuck with you from your reading?" Was it a snap word you read? Did you find punctuation in your book? The possibilities are endless! To complete this family activity, it is so necessary to have the books they need to share available at the level they are independently reading at. I am looking to secure funds to add to my limited collection of books meeting readers at a more accelerated level. These students and I work on higher level comprehension strategies and word study. I would love to be able to provide my students with more of a selection to share how much they have "grown" as readers with their families!

Calculating our Future

by: Tracy Gibbons

Graphing calculators are something every math student should have access to. In freshman level classes, much emphasis is put on the teaching students how to use the graphing calculator technology. Many students are unable to afford these on their own, so by providing them, we are creating an even playing field for all. Learning how to use technology is an essential component to using it correctly. By providing our students with the needed materials, we are helping them to gain confidence in a subject area many students feel inadequate.

It's Electric: Light Up Tanongou!

by: ANGELA BAZAN

The World Geography Class at McFarland High School is working to raise money to place solar panels in the village of Tanongou- located in Benin, West Africa. While we are used to the daily luxuries that electricity provides, such as lights, cellphones, technology, and stoves for cooking, the village of Tanongou has no electricity at all. Students who go to school all day are expected to contribute to their family's survival by helping in the home and fields after school. By the time they are able to study in the evening, it is too dark, making it near impossible to do so. Tanongou is also located near the largest game preserve and natural waterfall in Africa. The ability to get tourists to come off the path and into the village would promote economic tourism and give jobs to the people of the village. Having electricity would encourage tourists to stay in the village and provide all with a better way of life. Our goal of raising $2230 would allow us to place six solar panels in the village and change the lives of the people in Tanongou forever. Please help us change the world!
