FTA program

Several Dorothy Grant 3rd graders were recently honored for their essays and art created in honor of the Fontana Teachers Association’s Black History Month Essay, Visual Arts, and Media Presentation Contest entitled “Civil Rights in America.”

I had the pleasure of working with all the 3rd graders on this project and the following students’ work was selected as exemplars by the 3rd grade team and sent on to FTA to represent DGE:

Essays from Mrs. Alaniz’s class: Madison, Gilson, Sergio, Ytzell, and Evelyn

Essays from Ms. Moore’s class: Steven, Mariely, Litzy, Xavier, and Ava

Essays from my class: Jacob T., Jaqueline, Joseph, Jacob F., and Matthew

Essay winners in the TK – 3rd division (as determined by FTA):

1st place: Jacob T.

2nd place: Litzy

Congratulations!!

Art from Mrs. Alaniz’s class: Anyiah, Madison, Riley, Evelyn, and Alan S.

Art from Ms. Moore’s class: Ava, Sophia G., Ramneek, and Paris

Congratulations!!

The next FTA contest will be on Women’s History and the details will be announced soon.  I look forward to working with all of the 3rd graders again.  This time I will also be attempting to guide students in a media/technology project, so do stay tuned for that!
