LEAD ARTIST OPPORTUNITY

Little Mill Middle School

About the Org: Tell us about your organization: Little Mill Middle school is located in north east Forsyth County. We are a Title 1 Reward school. At LMMS we strive to give our students the skills and experiences that will prepare then to be productive citizens in a global community. The Learner Profile for Forsyth County Schools, which encompasses our expectations for students throughout their academic career, can be found here: http://www.forsyth.k12.ga.us/1617lp

About the Students: Little Mill serves approximately 890 students, ages 10-14, grades 6-8. We have approximately 35% or 310+ students who receive free or reduced lunch. A big challenge for LMMS is helping students understand their options after high school. A large portion of our population come from homes whose parents/guardians highest level of education is a high school diploma or less. Little Mill strives to help show those students who are at risk academically, or dropping out, that there are alternatives. We have programs like the “Kick It Up Club”, pathways selections, Breakfast Club, 7 Mindsets, and our latest initiative “Farm to Table” to help our students learn about their passions while understanding that we truly care for them now and in the future.

What they would like: Interactive Sculpture (STEAM) I would like to leave the media open to the visiting artist/students. Project would involve 65+- students. 

Potential Themes: Investing in the community, this could be linked to our Farm to Table initiative.

Dates/Times: Preferably sometime from September 11th- 22nd or November 6th - 10th.
