FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Q:  Will children be getting an individual square to color?

A:   No. Each classroom will be getting one big square to color together.

Q:  What material are we using to color the squares?

A:   We will be using oil pastel.

Q:  Do we have to trace the images ourselves?

A:   No.  Your square paper will already have images traced on by us.


Q:  Do we have to go to B1 Cafeteria to color?

A:   Not necessarily.  Each classroom teacher will choose the coloring location for his/her own class.  It could be B1 Cafeteria, Classroom, or even in the hallway!  Please contact your classroom teacher to find out about the time and location.

Q:  What is the parent volunteer's role?

A:   Parent volunteers' role will be assisting children in coloring as well as coloring the square themselves!  Remember, this is a community-wide art project, not a student only project!

Q:  Will we be able to finish the coloring in 1 hour as suggested?

A:   Maybe.  It really depends on the group.  Be prepared to stay longer if necessary to finish coloring if the 1 hr session with children turns out to be not enough time for your class.  Lower grades might take longer than the upper grades.

Q:  Who will be leading the coloring session?  A room parent or the teacher?

A:   The coloring session can be led by a room parent or the classroom teacher.  However, we ask a room parent to take care of material pick-up/drop-off, as well as rallying up parent volunteers to join in coloring.  A room parent is responsible for making sure the coloring is completed and for submitting the finished artwork to us.

Q:  Where do we pick-up the materials and drop off the finished artwork along with the left over materials?

A:   Pick-up: PTO room, Monday 4/22, 8:30am - 12:30pm.  

      Drop-off: ES Office, anytime before Friday 4/26, 3:00pm.
