At Fall Follies this year, attendees will get a chance to bid on a few very special projects made by the students the night is designed to support. The elementary students have been hard at work preparing the pieces that will create a special art project for each grade SK-5th. “For the Fall Follies student projects, every elementary grade is doing a collaborative decorative piece for auction. This project is so special because every single elementary art student contributed. It was so fun working with the students and Mrs. Stanley,” states Crystal Perez.
Kohler School Foundation’s annual event, Fall Follies, is an evening that brings together parents, educators, and other supporters of the school district for a fun evening of camaraderie and community. The event raises funds for the Kohler School Foundation, which is a non-profit organization that grants money to initiatives that support the Kohler School District’s strategic priorities, provides scholarships to graduating seniors, and takes the district beyond the basics of what the typical public school budget allows.
Each year the Kohler School Foundation looks for ways to bring representation from the kids it is trying to support into Fall Follies to make the night extra special. Each elementary student has decorated a paint stick that will be joined together to create a beautiful sunburst mirror. Tarra Mikolyzk, Crystal Perez and Nikki Hill have been working with the students over the last several weeks to create this project. Mrs. Milolyzk states, “It has been a while since we’ve had elementary art in our auction. The kids are very excited about their creations, and we hope the parents will be too! Special thanks to Stacey Stanley for letting us invade her classroom for a week!”
We hope to see you all at Fall Follies and bidding on these very special projects. Buy your tickets now at one.bidpal.net/ff2019/ticketing. And again, thank you to Mrs. Stanley who has generously donated classroom time to allow for the creation of this project.
