My Students

We are a small rural school located in Gilchrist, Oregon. Gilchrist is an old timber mill town built during the Great Depression. However, the town has dropped in population over the years during the recent recession Today, the town population is small and transient. We have about 90 students in the middle school and high school. The school is unable to offer many electives for students due to low staffing. We are also an hour and half away from it district office in Klamath Falls. This means our staff and students have limited resources and services.

My Project

Our school is small with limited staff and resources. Our middle school and high school students do not have many elective options despite their many talents. We have plenty of talented and artistic students who express a great interest in art. Unfortunately, we do not have the staffing or funding to start an art program.

I have worked with my administration to integrate basic art education and projects into my social studies curriculum.

I will also be starting an after school art option. However, I currently have no supplies to get started since our school has never had an art program. To get started, I need these requested acrylic and watercolor paints, gel pens, oil pastels, clay, storage boxes, canvas, paper, tray palettes, and easels. These materials will be used by students for different art projects.

Thank you for considering our small school for your generous donation!
