Through our C. Kyser Miree Center for Ethical Leadership, our students are leading the charge to improve their community. You can help by purchasing a shirt to support these projects.
Below you'll find three projects from our Upper School Miree students that you can support by either purchasing a shirt or making a donation. Details for each project can be found below.
Altamont’s 6th grade math classes are taking part in an interdisciplinary project on running a nonprofit business. As part of the project, the 6th grade students are collaborating with Miree Center students Karen Raymundo-Vega, Sarah Patrick Barze and Riley Pierce, using their Miree projects as inspiration. The 6th graders designed and are selling T-shirts to raise funds for the three Miree projects. As part of the interdisciplinary unit, the students have worked on design with the co-director of a local nonprofit, learned about sales and marketing from a local art director and sales executive, collected and used information from a local t-shirt vendor to make decisions about pricing, and explored website design and design software with Altamont’s director of education technology.
