My Students

Last school year, 2017-2018, our staff identified 3,335 homeless students. This is 37% of our district! All of our students automatically qualify for free or reduced-price lunch due to the economic status of our community. Many of our parents are employed as field workers, where paychecks can be small or sporadic, especially in winter when there is not much work. More than half of my class speaks English as their second language, and some have special needs. With that being said, they all love to come to school and want to learn. They deserve all the resources we can give to help them to be successful in school.

My Project

Oftentimes, schools focus solely on academics. It is important, however, to develop the whole child. This includes giving them access to electives, such as music, physical education, and art.

The inclusion of art is very important not only as a break from the academic demands of the school day but some students may be able to express themselves better through art.

As such, I am requesting funding for Crayola Oil Pastels, Tissue paper, art books (What's So Great About Picasso? and Katie and the Sunflowers) and other art supplies so that I can address all aspects of my students. Funding from this project will allow for a balance between academics and creative tasks, which can be completed via art.

My students and I thank you in advance for your kind donations to our classroom! We hope to be able to share some of our artwork with you one day.
