But April showers bring May flowers, and luckily for all of us in this dreary April weather, our school’s Art Club suggested a fundraiser. They offered to paint a window in our room for $10 a window, with the money all going to sponsor a local art teacher in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. I jumped at the opportunity.
Our library media specialist did, too. Her best windows open up to the hallway rather than the outdoors, so the flowers are there for everyone who passes by or comes in to check out a book.
And besides being an investment in a good cause, and in addition to giving young artists a chance to display their work, the early flowers really brighten the room. Teachers’ Manuals on the right, flowers on the left. I know which side makes me smile!
Could be worse, indeed.
>that was a cute addition.
>What a beautiful and fun fundraiser!
>Those are beautiful. I never thought to paint my windows with flowers.
>Oh how pretty! I’m going to email the idea to my kids’ teachers!
>Those flowers are AWESOME!
>The flowers are so lovely and such a great idea!
>How pretty. And what a great idea on how to raise funds!
>I love this idea! I may have to suggest it at a parent’s meeting.
>What a COOL idea. And pretty work…
Those beautiful colors sure do brighten up a rainy day!
