Howdy from RISE at Millwood!
RISE students at Millwood explore fashion design with YMCA artEMBRACE’s Kathy Franklin.
Our site is located in the clubhouse at the Millwood Manor apartments. All of our students are 8th grade Egyptian students, and it’s been a pleasure to reacquaint myself with this lively group. Last school year I met these students as a volunteer for the cooking enhancement, so I’m so excited to be back with them as their site coordinator! We have a core group of RISE veterans and new faces, too!
The students have painted over 30 paintings and created fashion notebooks in the first two weeks of enhancements. They are certified watercolor experts now. We have aced homework assignments every day, tackled algebra, vocabulary, identified states and facts, and even had time to play some games outdoors.
We’re going to have a fantastic school year at RISE - Millwood!
