My Students

Our students are amazing! Many were born into poverty, are immigrants or refugees from other countries, or are currently experiencing homelessness. Despite difficulties and hardships in their early and current lives, they come to school with smiles, eager, ready, and willing to learn and grow as part of our kindergarten community.

We often spend our own money on necessities for students like clothing, sneakers, snacks, and books.

This doesn't allow us to purchase supplemental materials for the classroom that the district doesn't provide but which can enhance the kindergartners' learning and understanding immensely.

My Project

My students love to use construction paper to cut and glue and make art with. Unfortunately, I have to limit their use due to not having much colored paper in the classroom.

Pablo Picasso said "Every child is an artist." He followed that with the words "The problem is to remain an artist once we grow up." I'd change the second part to say, unless they don't have basic art supplies to create with.

It would be awesome to have lots of colored paper for the students to use to create art with.

If this project is funded I wouldn't have to limit student's creative imagination due to lack of colored paper in the classroom. There would be plenty to last the school year!
