Exciting news! MAPS will be bringing a Holiday Market to the MHS community this holiday season! We’ve decided to partner with the Ninth Grade and Arty Party to create little trinkets that will appeal to both the public and the student body. Arty Party is a school art association in which students use their various artistic talents to create their own line of products. On the 17th, we met with Ms. Kreischer and Ms. Rutledge, the heads of Arty Party and the greenhouse respectively, to discuss our Holiday Market. Together we all will be working with the ninth grade and MAPS to generate various crafts to sell throughout the holiday season. Along with crafts made by the Ninth grade and Arty Party, the market will sell small gifts that are perfect for quick presents. MAPS is also working with Zana Africa, to sell crafts from Kenya at our school, and then send the proceeds back. Zana Africa is an organization that creates new opportunities for women and girls to thrive. We are thrilled to be working collaboratively with the Ninth grade, Arty Party, and Zana Africa. We hope that this is a highly successful program!
