Hilliard Education Foundation Grant Helps Bring Artist to Heritage

Environmental activist and artist John Sabraw spent time at Heritage Middle School this month, in part through funding from the Hilliard Education Foundation. Mr. Sabraw did an art project and chemistry lesson. You can learn more about his project in this YouTube video.

The in class lesson was just one part of his visit. The second part will take place later in the semester when students create their own ceramic plants and flowers to incorporate into the Heritage “global garden.” A project connecting students from all across the globe.Students working on art project

Giving students the opportunity to work directly with an expert in the world, and combine both academics and the arts, provides opportunities to help prepare them to be Ready for Tomorrow.

Ready for Tomorrow: Academics

We are extremely grateful that the Hilliard School Community voted to support the recent school levy. While any levy campaign is a challenge, it was great to share our district message face-to-face with thousands in our community. We are proud of the work we do, passionate about our mission, and optimistic about the future. We are educating the next generation of American leaders. School shouldn’t, it can’t, look like classrooms when we were students. We aren’t preparing students for yesterday or today; we are preparing students for tomorrow. We adults must embrace the discomfort of change. What was “good enough” for us in the 1980’s and 1990’s won’t prepare our young people for success in the 2030’s and 2040’s. We must work together . . . we must embrace this journey of change . . . and own the future together. We are on a path . . . a path to excellence taking one step at a time.
