We are so proud of our students working to support their community with the challenges of COVID-19, and wanted to share this inspirational highlight.
As reported in The Press-Enterprise on April 24, 2020:
Arnauld Martinez, a 10th-grader at Western Center Academy in Hemet, and his sister, Ariana, a ninth-grader, have started several projects since school campuses closed because of the coronavirus pandemic.
One project is a lockdown club, in which they read stories and do science experiments for elementary school students. The stories are posted on the Facebook page of Hemet’s Fingerprints Youth Museum, according to an email from Arnauld Martinez.
In addition to the lockdown club, Arnauld and Ariana are making face shields for local health-care workers, using two 3D printers on loan from their school. As of mid-April, they had made and delivered more than 100 face shields.
They also started sewing face masks for people in local senior homes, and Patricia Powell Gulassa of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, a mother involved with the lockdown club, pledged to sew 150 masks to donate.
