Mrs. C. from New Albany IN is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Color Our World Beautiful!

My students need colored pencils, permanent markers, and overhead transparency markers.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My amazing 4th graders come with more in their backpack than books - they also carry the baggage of being high-poverty children coming to our inner-city school with faces filled with hopes and dreams.

I can get their attention if I let them express themselves artistically, but without the art materials, their faces become crestfallen. Who wants to create with a few dried-up markers or a colored pencil that is only an inch and a half long?

By receiving a bountiful array of art materials such as markers and colored pencils, my students can create to their hearts' content. No longer will I have to hoard a few markers hidden in the depths of my desk for special occasions, I can now set up ample materials for all to enjoy and use each day.

Your help will ensure my students keep that spark of creativity and love of learning alive.

Mrs. C.
Grades 3-5
Nearly all students from low‑income households
