5th Grade Teacher Mrs. Cheryl Best and her 5th Grade Service Club participated in The Dream Flag Project, an annual poetry/art/community-connection project for students in K-12th grade. To participate in the project, students read the poetry of Langston Hughes, focusing on his dream poems. Students then create their own dream poems and transfer them on to pieces of cloth. They decorate their cloth and transfer them on to a line. These flags are currently displayed in Wolf Ridge halls. To date, more than 100,000 Dream flags have been created by students in 42 states and 27 other countries.
This year, Mrs. Best asked Mrs. Bristol’s high school multimedia class to come over and take a short video compilation of the flags and students reading their poems. It was a fun, learning task by all.
