Partnership for Los Angeles Schools
Now in its second year, the DIRECTV Math Challenge fosters a love of math in elementary and middle school students through a variety of incentives, including field trips, backpacks, pizza parties and more.
Nearly 100 volunteers from Creative Artists Agency and the Watts community came together at the Markham Middle School campus last month to makeover the campus. Students, staff, volunteers and community members revamped the campus, covering the school in a lively color scheme, creating inspirational murals across the campus and improving landscaping. Volunteers enjoyed lunch provided by a fleet of food trucks while families enjoyed various kid's activities, including a party jumper.
