My Students

The students at my school are a bunch of energetic children who come to school every day ready to learn.

They come from diverse backgrounds and aspire for greatness not only in themselves but in the world all around them.

They have kind hearts and curious minds!

They love to explore, learn, and work together in groups. They are amazing little people who need some support to increase classroom engagement and provide hands-on learning experience while solving real-world problems.

My Project

My students need basic art supplies to enhance their learning experiences. They need new paintbrushes to create beautiful masterpieces.

My students need paper to draw, color, and paint on.

These basic supplies will allow my students the opportunity to create artwork all throughout the school year. We will bring the content in our reading curriculum to life by creating vivid pieces of art to demonstrate our learning. We will also create shapes to measure the area and perimeter. This will be a hands-on learning experience instead of simply paper and pencil worksheets. They will also make art portfolios at the end of the school year to take home and keep for many years to come.
