The grant is aimed to help schools nurture children’s creativity, through a variety of methods, and inspire other schools to do the same.
Rivercrest Elementary's grant is focused on using the arts to increase family engagement and honor the learning that occurs beyond school walls. Teachers have received Crayola creatED professional development on creative leadership and multiliteracies and are now eager to share those insights and activities with families. Instead of traditional homework, families will create art-integration projects together at home that will bridge the learning between home and school.
