Art Packs

Eighteen after school students (4th/5th) participated in the Art Packs program with Raleigh Charter High School.  Art Packs is a rotating backpack program in which each student is lent a backpack filled with materials to engage in sports, art, games,and educational activities in their free time.  The goal of the program is to get kids excited about fun, stimulating activities that benefit their overall physical and mental health; therefore, the backpacks were able to be taken home and enjoyed by the students and any family members or friends.  After ten days, the students returned their backpacks to be issued another one.
Additionally, each backpack contained a letter written by a local high school student engaged in that activity that would encourage the student to pursue the target hobby.  Our students had a fun time responding the high school student's letter before receiving their next themed backpack.
