Art Club and YAC make stockings for "Our Spot" Head Start Program Children

The Art Club has a holiday tradition of making and decorating Xmas stockings and filling them with art supplies for children of a chosen school to enjoy making art during the holiday break.

It is also a tradition for the UD Service Club YAC (Youth Active in the Community) to help the Casady Upper Division Art Club cut, make, decorate, and fill the stockings.  This year, the selected school by the Art Club is "Our Spot" Head Start Program.

YAC began the project during the YAC meeting.  Mrs. Seitter, Mrs. Pardue and Mrs. Clay explained the history of the project and provided the materials to start cutting the stockings which this year will go to 4 and 5 years olds from a local head start program.

OUR SPOT HEAD START is a licensed Child Care Center that serves children ages 3 years, 4 years, and 5 years old.  It is located at 1532 W HEFNER RD.  The fifty 2017 Art Club Stockings will be delivered to the children on Tuesday, December 12th at 3:00 PM.  

Mrs. Seitter and Mrs. Pardue, Art Club sponsors, and YAC sponsor,  Miss Sarah Smith (substitute teacher for Mrs. Clay), are helping the UD Cyclones make and deliver the "art supplies, homemade stockings" for the 3 and 4-year olds who attend the afternoon session.  Mrs. Telemico, Our Spot Director (Our Spot <>), stated that the afternoon session only has 47 children as some have moved away.  The range of ages in the afternoon classes are 3 and 4-year olds.

Stockings will be delivered at 3:00 pm on Tuesday, December 12th by available Art Club, YAC members and sponsors.
