Haskell Academy Volunteers
Seasonal art provided by kristina Olson's Art Students at Haskell Academy
Haskell School is an. elementary school, just blocks from the church. It is a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) Academy. Parishioners interact with the school and students in four different ways:
- Parishioners help students with reading and math and have done so for eight years.
- Haskell art instructor Katrina Olson provides Emmanuel with students’ seasonal artwork, so we are blessed with a continuous art show in the church Undercroft.
- One Emmanuel family sponsors a yearly field trip for all third graders to Severson Dells, nature, and environmental education center. More sponsors are needed for field trips to local museums and music venues.
- Church members have donated funds and clothing for the emergency closet at Haskell.
This is an ongoing need.
