Crayons for Kids Community Service Project at Work!

Remember all of those "Crayons for Kids" individual art kits our community has been helping us assemble so that our elementary students can continue to participate in the arts while also being compliant with COVID-19 protocols? We've been seeing some GREAT examples from our young artists of how these kits are being put to good use!

One of our district art specialists, Rebecca Ory-Hernandez (a.k.a. Mrs. O), had this to say: "Without individual sketchbooks, crayons, oil pastels, pencils, erasers, sharpeners, scissors, washable colored markers, watercolors, and glue we could not have done these complex projects at this time. I'm not sure what I would do without the generosity of the OSF providing us with supplies since our priority is keeping everyone safe and healthy! I look forward to many more fun projects as we continue exploring creativity!"

Fall Author Sponsors

Thank you, thank you, thank you (and thank you again!), to all of our Fall Author sponsors for still coming through for the students in Ogden in spite of our event being canceled. Our hearts are full of gratitude for the generosity that continues to be shown to the children of our community during these uncertain times. There's nowhere else we'd rather be than right here in Ogden!

 

Snuggle With a Book
