Here is where we need your help:
Inform the parents about the project and ask for volunteers to help organize the coloring session and also participate in the coloring from April 22 - April 26.
Communicate with your classroom teacher to determine time, location and details for the coloring session (see below for suggestions).
Pick up the coloring materials on Monday, April 22 any time between 8:30am - 12:30am from PTO Office, and submit the finished art work and return the left over materials to us by Friday, April 26.
Just to give you the big picture, finished artwork will measure 6m x 3.75m, each unit square for coloring measuring 75cm x 75cm.
There will be a total of 40 coloring unit squares and of these, 18 ES classrooms will each take care of 1 square (75cm x 75cm). You can refer to the main Music and Art Committee webpage for more images.
We suspect that 20-25 kids won't be able to color all at the same time on a 75cm square so you might want to divide the class into 4 or 5 groups and have the groups take turns coloring.
One suggestion is that the classroom teacher can have the rest of the class work on a class project while room moms manage the coloring group. If room parents have an end of year gift signing or project for the kids, perhaps that can be done with the children waiting for their turn to color. Each class can decide for themselves. The coloring session will take about an hour, but it could vary depending on the age of the children.
The Music and Art committee at YISS PTO will be reserving B1 cafeteria for any classes that would like to use the room for coloring during the coloring period, 4/22 - 4/26. We will send a google doc to the classroom teachers soon for signing up to use the B1 cafeteria. Of course, they are more than welcome to have the session in their own classrooms.
Detailed instructions on coloring is now available.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many many thanks for all you do for our school community!
