Mrs. Liss from Sacramento CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students "What Would Anne Frank do?" notebooks, paints, printing ink, and books to create a lasting memorial for Anne Frank's 90th birthday.
Can you imagine living in the projects and seeing desperation all around you? My students ride a bus from their projects into our semi-affluent neighborhood where our school is located, wanting to find a way out! They work hard and overcome obstacles many would shy away from. They are amazing and achieve more every year. They have ideas, thoughts, and dreams. They only lack the money to have these dreams come true. Hearing stories from first-hand survivors of such an atrocity as the Holocaust gives them the courage to survive their lives.
My students are a multi-cultural group who become a family within our time together.
They have created murals, gardens, benches and more that brighten the day of all the students in our school. They created murals to honor Anne Frank and wrote Anne Frank quotes on benches. Tolerance is a huge part of our curriculum and plays an important part of all that we are and do. We brainstorm ideas and I write grants to help their ideas come to life. For the last 10 years, we have even raised the money to go to South California to tour the Museum of Tolerance.
Many years in my teaching profession have been phenomenal, but this year will be one for the record books. We are working to complete murals of Anne Frank, finishing our Bandage Project, and creating more Anne Frank quote benches. We want our Tolerance Garden memorial to be completed by June 12, 2019 (Anne's 90th birthday.) To do this, we need paint, paintbrushes, books, and ink to create it.
As we read Diary of a Young Girl, her words inspire and motivate my students to keep her memory alive.
A local artist created a mural of Anne for us which ignited my students to want to create one by themselves too. They selected their favorite quotes and are writing them on wood beams to create Anne Frank benches in our Tolerance Garden. They will then write their quotes and paint pictures on two smaller murals that will hang beside the Anne Frank murals.
