This year we are working on building student, school, and community culture and pride as an entire school. To help in this process we have divided our students into six Houses. To build a culture of learning and school pride we would like to have the Houses beautify the school by painting the ceiling tiles to reflect House, school, and community pride. The paintings will incorporate images and phrases that encompass the attributes of their House, our school motto and mascot, and from the students’ cultural backgrounds.

Goal

This year we are working on building student, school, and community culture and pride as an entire school. To help in this process we have divided our students into six Houses. To build a culture of learning and school pride we would like to have the Houses beautify the school by painting the ceiling tiles to reflect House, school, and community pride. The paintings will incorporate images and phrases that encompass the attributes of their House, our school motto and mascot, and from the students’ cultural backgrounds. 

 

What will be done with my students

This activity will take place throughout the school year and will impact all buildings on campus. The goal is to continue the ceiling tiles for years to come. Students will work in their Houses to develop ideas and sketches of what to paint on their tiles. Students will learn to create connections among art and other disciplines to strengthen their school pride and culture (art standard VA.68.H.3). The students will do this by researching the meaning of their House and use their knowledge of that culture to create and interpret works of art that reflect that meaning and to innovate their art concepts (art standard VA.68.F.1). As students work in their Houses to paint their ceiling tiles they will be working to create a more positive school culture and climate. As the tiles are then replaced around the school the school culture and pride will be impacted as well (art standard VA.68.O.3).  

 

Benefits to my students

This activity is a continuation of the same activity that we completed two years ago. We would like to reach further and impact more buildings on our campus and let new students enjoy the culture building activity. Additionally, this activity will reach the entire campus; all 1200 students and over 100 teachers and staff, not to mention countless other district personnel and community members that enter our campus. Teaching students about various cultures and how to embrace different cultural values is priceless. As students learn more about the meaning of their Houses and start to develop those positive characteristics in themselves, this will only be reinforced by expressing those ideal artistically.  

 

Budget Narrative

All of these materials will be used for the entire school, over 1200 students, to have the opportunity within their homeroom classes to paint ceiling tiles to represent their House culture. The ceiling tiles themselves do not need to be purchased because we will be using those that are already in place.
