We LOVE Mrs. Ahaus and her enthusiasm for art & her students. She usually completes a big project each year that every single student can participate in and enjoy (a past examples include "Hurst Rocks" displayed outside a window students pass by and a set of wings in another hallway).
On top of those projects and her normal art classes - she also heads up a "Make a Difference" team, consisting of 5th & 6th graders. Last year they enthusiastically raised money to create water wells in Africa. It taught them so much about having empathy for how others may be struggling. She is once again taking this task on this year with 3 big initiatives. Because of this - not only will the ASPCA, Empty Bowls, and the Ronald McDonald House be beneficiaries - Hurst Hills children will once again learn it's important to be good to others. We LOVE this program and LOVE Mrs. Ahaus for having such a giving heart that she shares with her students!
