This is a community project by Vail students in grades 2nd thru 5th. The project came about after the students met greyhounds and golden retrievers. Hear their voices and digital stories.
Pet Project: The Cottonwood Elementary School’s Through Our Eyes Project of Digital Stories titled “Our Voice, Our Eyes” will be presented Saturday, May 11 from 10 to 11:30 am, at the Loft Cinema, located at 3233 East Speedway Blvd.
The Through Our Eyes Project belongs to Vail students in grades 2 through 5. Each year a group of 10 students creates and completes a Service-Learning Project.
Everyone has a voice.
This is the goal of their group; to find their voice, and tell their stories. One student in the group reminded them that everything has a story and this includes animals. This was the start of their journey…to be the voice of rescued Greyhounds and Golden Retrievers. They decided to tell the dogs’ stories.
Each student will present a short video telling the story of a very special dog. The shared message of each story is to “Respect All.” Some of us have to speak louder for those with a softer voice.
Photographs will be available for purchase at the theater. Donations of $5 will be accepted for admission to the Loft. 100% of the proceeds will be shared by Arizona Greyhound Rescue, Rescue a Golden of Arizona, and the Humane Society of Southern Arizona. These organizations are devoted to ensuring that animals are cared for, respected, honored, and valued. The students are grateful for the time, money and love given to these dogs by the volunteers and owners.
This will be a beautiful and special event to celebrate the voice, action, dedication, and art of our local youth. Please come out to support our young artists and local rescues by filling up the Loft Cinema.
