One of the programs your membership and our fundraising efforts support each year is Imagine a World, our combination science and art fair that celebrates student creativity across disciplines! Last year was the first year when we opened this event to our wider Redding community, inviting everyone to partake in science experiments and art projects like building hand-held light-up circuits and making fashion from recycled household materials. In preparing our children to go into the world, giving them a passion for STEM, as well as encouraging the creative, artistic spirit so present here in Redding, is a great foundation for future success, and we are proud to support the work our teachers are doing with this fun enrichment opportunity.
This year’s Imagine a World committee is already beginning to meet and prepare for this exciting event. The committee chair is looking for scientists, engineers and artists of all sorts who might want to contribute to this amazing experience. Committee meetings will be scheduled to accommodate a variety of schedules, and there will be opportunities to join via conference call or participate via email, if that’s helpful! If you’re interested in volunteering to bring your love of science or the arts to RES, send us a message here or via our RES PTA FB page!
You can support Imagine a World and all our other PTA programs by becoming a member of the RES PTA. You can set up your 2017-2018 membership at MySchoolAnywhere.com, using the code REDDINGELEMENTARY. All Gold Memberships received prior to September 30, 2017, will be able to receive our new tote bag as a thank you. (It will be great for toting around your little one’s science projects and sculptures!) If membership isn’t for you, please consider signing up for our mailing list, using the same link, to hear about upcoming PTA events and projects.
