This week grade three students hosted an art expo and sale with proceeds donated to the World Wildlife Fund. Before the sale, art teach Marsha Bycraft talked with her students. She told them she expected their work to sell quickly because it’s good work! She arrived for the second half of the sale and found most students had already sold the majority of their pieces to fellow students, teachers and parents. Classroom teacher Stacy Trihn thinks the third graders were well prepared for their art expo after hosting a market day earlier this year. Students understood how to talk about their art and its purpose with their patrons.

Grade three students raised about fourteen hundred dollars to donate to the World Wildlife Fund. That is enough money to support twenty-five endangered animals! Below are a few examples of student research presentations. These are animals the WWF helps.
