Middle School Artwork Sent to Haiti

Benjamin Logan Middle School art students, Lexi Achor and Josh Phillips, recently created illustrations for books sent to Haiti.  The project began when community member Becky Cronkleton was planning her 5th mission trip to Haiti.  Mrs. Cronkleton assists in the Haitian schools and has seen firsthand the need for teacher and student resources.  She wanted to help the children by providing books written in French.  She selected “Red Cow” and “On the Farm”.  Mrs. Cronkleton asked Benjamin Logan Middle School art teacher, Mrs. Jennifer Davis, if she had a few students that might be interested in illustrating the stories.  Mrs. Davis shared the project idea with 7th grade students Lexi Cronkleton and Josh Phillips.  Both Lexi and Josh were interested and took on the commitment to create numerous pages of artwork for the books.  Space was left on each of the pages for the written stories.  A French speaking friend of Mrs. Cronkleton kindly wrote the stories in French for the Haitian students.  The pages were then laminated, bound, and even featured photos of Lexi and Josh on the back pages as the illustrators.

Mrs. Cronkleton visited Haiti in January 2016.  On January 28, she came to BLMS to see Mrs. Davis, Lexi and Josh.  She shared with them about her recent visit and told of the children’s excitement when they saw the vibrant and colorful pictures in their new books.  Mrs. Cronkleton brought Lexi and Josh photos of the students viewing the creative books.  It was obvious in their smiles that they loved the books created by Lexi and Josh.  “They are lucky to even have a piece of chalk for the chalkboard”, Mrs. Cronkleton shared.  Books, paper, and other supplies are such a need in their classrooms.

As a thank you to Lexi and Josh, Mrs. Cronkleton brought them each a painted metal artwork in the theme of a Haitian bus, or tap-tap.  The beautifully painted metal was created by a Haitian artist that Mrs. Cronkleton met while on the mission trip.  The project was a fantastic opportunity for Lexi and Josh.  They felt wonderful about helping the children in Haiti by way of making art for them.  Art in itself is a universal language, and the pictures spoke in a beautiful way to the Haitian children.

Service Learning


123

Community service is a great and effective way to help the area community. In order to gain the most out of community service, there should be an element of learning balanced with the serving aspect. By learning and serving all at the same time, students can improve their community and surroundings while learning life lessons and building character in ways that will help them to further impact the world in the future. Many clubs such as the middle school Builders Club and Student Council are leaders in this area. Below is a video of the service learning projects that take place at Benjamin Logan Middle School throughout the year.
