Cool Bulletin Board idea to "spotlight" a student or famous person. I would do both. Maybe every week a different actor, playwright, designer, etc to research to extra credit or a weekly report, and every now and then a student, to make them feel special having been up on the same wall as a big name.
This is a classroom helpers board, but I like the idea of using it as a home faith formation thing - each pocket is a category of prayer and each stick is a person you know and you can have a visual of who to pray for what (with elementary-aged kids). Maybe this would be overwhelming or maybe it would help visually organize your prayers. Just an idea...
