阿尔塔高家庭填补“空碗”,战胜饥饿

Every fall, Anne Mallory looks at the students in her ceramics and sculpture classes at Alta High and tells them one heartbreaking fact: Of the eight people sitting at your table, two came to school hungry today.

Every day, one in five children in Utah don’t know where they will find their next meal, according to Feeding America, a charity that networks food banks across the country. Every year, Alta art students work to help the Utah Food Bank by creating pottery bowls in Mallory’s class. They sell the bowls, along with donated soup, at Alta’s parent-teacher conference, then donate the proceeds to the Food Bank.emptybowls.jpg

“I just think it’s a fun and easy activity to fundraise and get everybody involved,” said senior Jeni Jolley, who is president of Alta’s art club. “I wish there were more ways as an art club that we could do that. This is a good way because it is so cohesive.”

什么时候emptybowls2.jpg giving the Empty Bowls assignments to her students, Mallory simply tells them to make a beautiful bowl that they would want to buy.  The result is a collection of bowls of varying hues, sizes and shapes. Some are sculpted, some are thrown on a wheel–all of them are made with love.

“It’s a really fun way to incorporate ceramics while addressing cultural issues,” Mallory said at Monday’s parent-teacher conference. “They can see a direct impact with what they do.” The art club has sponsored the Empty Bowls event for the last nine years, donating about $500 to the Food Bank last year alone.

Parents and students visited the art club’s table and display of bowls, buying one of four kinds of soup donated by the Olive Garden. Great Harvest also donated bread for the occasion. For all of the things Jolley could have been doing on Monday evening, there was nowhere else she’d have rather been than warming up crock-pots of soup, making change, and recruiting more customers for their efforts. “It feels good,” Jolley said.

如果制作一部关于超级教师的电影,露西·张伯伦将是主角的主要候选人。对于她在 Alta View 小学的幼儿园学生来说幸运的是,她已经在为他们提供支持的角色中茁壮成长。父母感谢她是“超级老师”。她也被描述为“了不起的同事”。无论学生是在课堂上还是在生病时在家中需要帮助,露西都在帮助他们学习、克服恐惧、感到重要和被关心。据家长们说,露西是许多孩子从讨厌学校变成喜欢学校的原因。她散发出耐心、甜蜜、正能量和对有特殊需要的学生的爱的方式受到赞赏和钦佩。一位家长指出:“我的两个孩子都希望她能永远成为他们的老师。”另一位补充说:“她对待每个学生都像对待他们的学习一样,他们的感受是她的首要任务。”超级老师,真的!
