Southern Heights Elementary seeking donations for ‘International Dot Day’
Southern Heights Elementary School will be participating in ‘International Dot Day’ (IDD) in September, and they’re seeking help getting supplies for kids to use.
IDD was named after the Peter H. Reynolds book ‘The Dot,’ which was released in 2003. It is the story of a little girl who does not believe that she can draw, but eventually her teacher convinces her to “make her mark” by drawing a simple dot.
“At Southern Heights we will be celebrating IDD on Monday, September 16 with an all school reading of The Dot, followed by a discussion, and grade level art projects,” said Jennifer Ferry, Librarian. “We are even hoping to Skype with another classroom in the district to share our ideas about the book and our projects!”
Donations are needed by Friday, Sept. 6.
In short, here’s how I need help. I would like each grade level to complete different art projects, but I need some help with supplies. Here’s what I’m in need of to make the IDD projects a success (used supplies are welcome as long as they still have life):
- Various colors of BINGO daubers
- Colored tissue paper
- Watercolor markers (Crayola or similar)
- Various colors of fine point Sharpie markers
- Any heavy, white art paper
Supplies can be dropped off at Southern Heights Elementary (11249 14th Ave. S. 206-631-5000) or CAPERS (4525 California Ave. SW, 206-932-0371), preferably by Friday, Sept. 6.
