A Powerful Partnership
May 4th was an exciting day at CS 111Q . Community-Word Project , a collaborative arts residency program, and Neuberger Berman , an investment management firm, came together to celebrate the scholars of CS 111Q who participated in CWP’s residency this Spring! The organizations came together and gifted individually wrapped books to our scholars. Kindergarten scholars received “The Quickest Kid in Clarksville,” by Pat Zietlow Miller and “Matilda” by Roald Dahl.
The essence of the day was to celebrate the fun that comes along with learning about yourself through art, theater, and, of course, literature. Scholars started off class with a group activity led by CWP teaching artists and special guest volunteers from Neuberger Berman. Scholars acted out scenes from their culminating pieces, rehearsed with the volunteers, and learned fun facts about them. Then, volunteers and staff surprised scholars with the beautifully wrapped books! After unveiling their gifts and smiling ear to ear from excitement, scholars got together to recite the ever famous CWP motto, “I have a voice. My voice is powerful. My voice can change the world!” The words rang throughout the classroom and spilled into the hallways. There was much joy to be felt!
