Streams students paint with a purpose
Nearly 170 Streams Elementary students participated in a recent PAINT your heART out! event to benefit the school’s art teacher, Mrs. Angela Stevenson and her family. Held on June 7, students snacked, sipped and painted with a purpose.
“As a Streams community, we are working together to support our favorite art teacher, Mrs. Angie Stevenson and her wonderful family,” Mrs. Lauren Kopicko, kindergarten teacher, said. “Mrs. Stevenson’s amazing 10-year-old son, Julius, has a rare form of leukemia. This summer, he will undergo a bone marrow transplant with his brave six-year-old sister, Simone, as his donor.”
For a suggested donation of $25, students stayed after school to participate in a teacher-led painting activity to create their very own masterpiece on an 8x10 canvas. The event wrapped up with popsicles on the playground.
In total, the event raised more than $4,600. Those wanting to make a donation to assist the Stevenson family can contribute via a gofundme page that was created by Eisenhower Elementary School Counselor Amy Miller.
