Art Class Wish List

Art room wish list

While school supply shopping is on the brain (& tax-free!) this weekend, please consider supporting our wonderful Art teacher, Ms. Williams, by visiting her Amazon wish list and sponsoring an item or two. 🎨

Help us stock up the Art Room and promote kindness! Students earn kindness points for their class by showing kindness to themselves, each other, the teacher, materials, and the art room. When they fill up their kindness chart, they earn a free art day where I put out a lot of fun activities and supplies for them to use!

All Metro Nashville Public Schools students will receive no-cost meals during the 2023-2024 school year

MNPS kids having lunch

All Metro Nashville Public Schools students will receive no-cost meals during the 2023-2024 school year thanks to the support of the MNPS Board of Education and the federal Community Eligibility Provision program.

And, while student meals are no cost, families who may quality for free and reduced meals, and whose students are not attending a CEP school are encouraged to submit a Meal Benefits Application because qualification helps connect families to things such as:

  • discounts for fees associated with college applications
  • scholarships and fee discounts for SAT, ACT and AP tests
  • greater federal reimbursement to provide for program improvement
