Provocraft was holding a special contest exclusively for their Cricut Circle members where we could nominate one school of our choice to win a Cricut Expression and the first 500 nominations won! I nominated Kyrene Milenio because that's where my kids go. Today I received a phone call letting me know that my school was chosen and that they will receive the Cricut Expression before October 1, 2010. I think it's awesome that they are donating these machines to schools. They'll have so much fun making bulletin boards and crafts!
Here's what it looks like:
Here was what I wrote for the justification:
"The students at Milenio receive a challenging education in an environment which recognizes the individual differences and needs of each child. The administration, teachers, instructional assistants, specialists and support staff work to forge strong partnerships with the families of the students. Music, art, physical education and technology are considered to be part of the essential core learning experiences. The art program provides strong experiences in the visual arts and student art is proudly displayed throughout our school. Last year when I volunteered for Mr. Blair's class I used the Cricut to create the bulletin for his class and I received so many complements from the kids. They really liked it! They will love having their own creations!"
