Did You Know...

In our blog series "Did You Know..." we will spotlight the different programs and events at Sato that SECO helps to fund and organize!

Did you know... SECO helped 2nd Grade teachers bring in artist Valerie Cooper with Inner Artist Paint Parties! Appropriately enough, when Valerie visited classrooms this past Thursday, the sun was shining and students were rounding out their life science unit on the life cycle of plants by painting sunflowers!  Valerie guided the students as they expressed their knowledge in this fun and creative way. SECO partnered with the Beaverton Education Foundation to fund this art project. By leveraging our dollars, SECO contributed half of the funds, in addition to contributions made by second grade parents, to a BEF grant that was matched dollar-for-dollar by First Tech Credit Union. We are excited to be able to enhance our students’ learning by bringing them this artist in residence!  All the artwork will be on display this coming Tuesday, April 24, at our Sato STEAM night from 6-8 pm.
