Eighth graders at Kenney Middle School are designing place mats for Kim’s Village Café in Hannibal that emphasize school spirit.
KMS Art Teacher Hollie House gave her students four school categories to choose from for the focus of their design: the school’s vision, mission, beliefs or parameters.
The objective is to advertise these parameters and beliefs in a way that allows community members to internalize them.
”I chose to do our beliefs,” said Zach Gombas. “My place mat goes into detail about each belief so that people who know nothing about them will know exactly what they are about.”
The beliefs of the district are: students first, high expectations, communication, student centered learning, open to change, passion for learning and respect for all.
Amberann James chose to utilize a portion of the HCSD vision statement, which reads, “Our graduates leave excited and energized to succeed in the 21st Century and beyond.”
The place mats will be printed in black and white on purple colored paper and used at Kim’s Village Café as well as other local businesses.
