THE STORY:

 Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” This quote said by our school’s namesake, Helen Keller, is not only our school motto but also couldn’t be more fitting for this Wagon Warriors project. Last year, our school came together to make Christmas extra special for one of our families whose mother was suffering from cancer. When I heard about this project, I thought it would be a great way to keep our school giving to the cause.  As the art teacher, when I asked for student volunteers to give up their recess to do something nice for someone less fortunate, I was humbled to have students come in day after day excited to work on our wagon. As we worked, each day we had fun with painting, glittering, and getting to know the Trolls characters better than any of us thought we ever would. But what was most meaningful to me, were the discussions we had. Many of the students had cancer touch their lives somehow, through their family or friends. This made the overall connection of what we were doing so much deeper. They wanted to make the wagon perfect for the kids who would be riding it in and thought of every small detail.   The Trolls movie is colorful, musical, happy, and has a message of being hopeful and never giving up. We hope our wagon instills that, in not only our riders but their parents as well. Our riders can even press a button to hear Poppy’s song, “Not Giving Up Today!” Colton’s Cure, the American Cancer Society, Associated Bank, and our school community coming together to bring smiles on some of the most deserving faces is such a wonderful thing! Just like Helen Keller believed, we truly are coming together to accomplish a lot!
