My students are the pride of East Los Angeles! They have drive and integrity, and take great pride in being awesome human beings. They are a resourceful group who collaborate well and are always up for a challenge.
Our school is a pillar of the East Los Angeles community and prides itself on its record of growth and achievement.
While we are a Title 1 school and nearly 90% of my students qualify for free or reduced lunch, my students are so much more than statistics. They are outstanding young people whose generosity and motivation make me happy to come to work each day.
My outstanding students are bursting with creativity, but do not always have the venue to express it. While they do take a visual art class for one year of high school, they want more opportunities to show off their artistic prowess. Because of this, I try to integrate art into the curriculum whenever possible - from illustrating vocabulary in Frayer squares to creating mandalas to characterize people from The Alchemist and Hamlet.
I am requesting markers and colored pencils to make my students' work shine.
They do not always have the resources to bring their own art supplies from home, and the supplies are school provides are basic. With colored pencils and many shades of markers, my students will have what they need to create art that helps them to master English content in my classroom.
Thank you in advance for your generosity! My students will be thrilled to receive these art supplies, and will make good use of them this year and in years to come. They are careful managers of our resources, and treat them well so that they can last for a long time.
