Last week I received a very special visit from an inspiring 4th grader at Vallecito, Samuel Michael. For the past year and a half Samuel has been working hard making and selling his beautiful candles to friends, family, and the local community.

During remote school, Samuel missed his teachers so much that he decided that he would start a business and donate 10% of every sale to Can Do! He wanted to make sure that the Can Do! Specialists (Art, PE, Music) were able to keep their jobs.

Samuel's generous contribution that he personally handed me last week touched my heart so much. We are so grateful for his kind and giving heart along with his entrepreneurial spirit. Thank you, Samuel, for your generous donation to Can Do!

Thank you SO much to the
693 families and community members
who have so generously contributed to the 2021-22 Family Giving Campaign so far. We are so grateful! 



We have not yet reached our goal though, and still need your support. Any amount is greatly appreciated, whether it is $5, $20, $100, our suggested ask of $600, or any amount in between.

Every donation makes a difference for your students to keep the essential programs Can Do! funds.  Plus, you may pay in one payment or spread them out monthly!  

PLEASE
    
Your donations directly support every student, every day! 

MILLER CREEK CLUB SPOTLIGHT

I had the pleasure this past Friday night listening to the Miller Creek Jazz Combo play at Big Rock Cafe. Their enthusiasm, energy, and talent shined through. Can Do! is so proud to be able to fund this club as well as the many other clubs MCMS offers. Thank you also to Can Do! Business Partner, Big Rock Cafe for giving them a stage to perform!



ART SPECIALIST SPOTLIGHT

Our teachers are masters at using timely topics to inspire curriculum.

Art Specialist, Ms.Winter, led the students at Mary Silveira through some beautiful art projects inspired by two female Ukrainian artists. The students also finished a sunflower installation at the school entrance in support of Ukraine and a school-wide "Women in History" collaborative piece. 




Art Specialist, Ms.Paula, led the students at Lucas Valley, in
creating this beautiful tribute to the people of Ukraine. 


Art Specialist at Vallecito, Mr. Newman, recently led 1st graders to these fun cow portraits, 3rd graders enjoyed connecting with nature with these fabulous cardinals in birch forests drawings, and 4th graders were inspired by literature with these amazing character portraits from  "Where the Wild Things Are".
