Card 20 - Our Presumpscot School Community

From the Models of Excellence Project Card Collection

Presumpscot Elementary School
Portland, ME

Kindergarten students created a set of “community cards” to serve as a staff directory for their school and to be used with visitors, family members and new students to orient people to their school. Each card has a photo of the staff member, a drawing of a tool that staff member uses in his or her work, and information about his or her job and interests in their life beyond the school.

On the reverse side of each card is a map of the school highlighting the site where that staff member works.

The kindergartners used this project to get to know their 
school as a physical place and to build relationships with, and appreciation for, the adults who work there. They honed their skills as researchers, writers, illustrators and photographers.
