Ms. Kaufman from Oklahoma City OK is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Art Room Basics

My students need SAFE-T COMPASS, plastic protractors, pencils, pencil boxes, and stencils.

My Students

Our school is mostly African-American students; 286 students or 42.2% of the student population identify as African-American, making up the largest segment of the student body. A typical school in Oklahoma City is made up of 21.5% African-American students, so our school has a drastically different ethnic distribution compared to other schools in the city.

All students receive free or reduced lunch; 100% of K-12 public school students participate in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP).

To qualify for free lunch, children's family income must be under $15,171 in 2015 (below 130% of the poverty line). 100% of our students receive free lunch.

My Project

My art classroom needs to replace the basic supplies; SAFE-T COMPASS, plastic protractors, pencils, pencil boxes, and stencils. This will ensure our school year for 2018-2019 will be off to a great start. We use the compasses, protractors, pencil, and pencil boxes all for drawing, measuring, drawing straight lines, drawing circles, storage, and organization. The stencils are for my students with special needs. This will help them with their fine motor skill and hand eye coordination. We have to replace most of the items yearly due to the number of students who use them daily. The wear and tear adds up fast.
