Reiche Community School third-graders recently were awarded a $495 Painting for a Purpose Grant to support their service learning project called “Preschool Buddies.”

Teacher Emily Harriman's third-grade students have been visiting the preschool program at Opportunity Alliance located on Cumberland Avenue, which services future Reiche kindergarten students. The Reiche students engage the preschoolers in fun activities and in late spring, they will invite the preschoolers to visit Reiche, get a tour of the school and celebrate with an ice cream social.  The grant will be used to purchase books, games and materials for the preschool activities.

Painting for a Purpose is a local organization that funds youth-led initiatives in the Portland Public Schools that make a difference in the community.
