Mini-Grants for Teachers CFWT Grant Story: New Home ISD
A New Home art teacher purchased a pottery wheel, toolkit, and clay for her classroom with a Mini-Grant from the Community Foundation of West Texas. These pottery items were purchased for K-6 and 9-12 grade student use for the 2019-2020 school year.
Students began learning about the process of throwing pots by watching videos and the teacher’s demonstrations. The teacher said: “The students were so excited to get their hands dirty and learn how to throw pots on a wheel.” Students also enjoyed the process of trimming, shaping, and manipulating the clay to create a masterpiece.
The teacher closes her report with: “I am so thankful to be able to offer this experience for our students and also for future students here at New Home Schools.” If you would like to give to the Community Foundation of West Texas, please click the following link: www.cfwtx.org/give-now.
