Story in Many Pics: East Point Students Get Bikes Donated by Aaron and Alvin Jones

Christmas arrived early for East Point Elementary students as they received bikes donated by Aaron and Alvin Jones Thursday afternoon.

While the former Burges and UTEP stars weren’t able to make the event, their parents were in attendance, helping distribute the gifts, while the smiles spread throughout the gym.

Our very own Johnny Yturales was there and we bring you his view of the donation event in this Story in Many Pics.

Ysleta ISD School Awarded $2,000 UNthink Grant

East Point Elementary School has received a $2,000 “UNthink My School” grant from The Wahl Foundation and the National Association of Elementary School Principals as a reward for approaching a challenge with a creative solution.

The “UNthink My School” program was created by the Wahl Foundation, a group dedicated to enabling positive change in the learning process through the integration of artistic concepts and creative expression. The foundation was created in order to reinforce themes in founder Erik Wahl’s book, “UNThink: Rediscover Your Creative Genius.”

“Reading the hundreds of grant applications we received, we were filled with gratitude and hope for the future of education,” said Tasha Wahl, the foundation’s executive director. “It was extremely difficult to choose between so many innovative ideas.

“We based our final decisions on the applicant’s creative concept for how to ‘UNthink’ their school environment and how they integrated their school community and neighborhood demographics in the projects,” she added.

At East Point ES, the UNthink grant will allow students to create and display tangible evidence of how they resolve conflicts in a fair and peaceful way. Students will follow a “Peace Path” process for resolving conflict, and will sign posters or cloth banners for their Peace Path.

The posters and banners will be displayed at the school throughout the year, officials said.

“Young people need proof that they matter,” said Maria McNulty, East Point ES counselor. “These banners will help demonstrate – in a creative way – the importance of students’ feelings and their personal growth.”

The Wahl Foundation also offered one $20,000 grant and nine other $2,000 grants. To learn more about the Wahl Foundation and its work to foster innovation and help the underserved, visit www.thewahlfoundation.com
