The Tomorrow’s Educators Advancing Careers Here Club held a book drive in October to contribute to Rumble into Reading.
“The Alpha Eta Alpha team would like to extend our gratitude to Dr. Frances Hendrix and Dr. Joanne Stafford for their advice and support with this project,” said Executive Vice President Elizabeth Tabak.
“We have been awed to see Rose students, faculty and the community reaching out and uniting in a cause; the Telstar and Willow Brook students truly have become ‘our’ students,” she said.
“We would like to extend many thanks to all those who donated to the art drive. Thank you,” Sharp said.
“A particularly humbling donation that came was from Victor, a seven-year-old student who donated his own school supplies and Pokemon card money,” Tabak said. “His donation came with a letter, reminding us to ‘remember the children.’”
The Honors in Action project required a research component, which is about how the incorporation of the visual and performing arts in education helps to create a positive outlet to the effects of poverty within the K-12 education system.
PTK sold refreshments at the stomp dance, hosted by the American Indian Association as part of their Native American Heritage Month celebration, on Nov. 20. The proceeds will go to Telstar and Willow Brook.
