Craft Supplies for Crafty Students

My students need craft supplies - poster board, glitter pens, paint, and brushes - to complete their projects.

My Students

Our students have so little and I want to give them so much more. All of the students here come from homes below the poverty line, and I want them to have the chance to experience something that can influence their lives.

These students are so disadvantaged that many don't have access to the simplest supplies at home.

I want them to be exposed to as much as possible so that they don't fall behind in their future educational endeavors. They come from broken homes, are living with an aunt or grandparent instead of Mom and Dad, and many even come from homeless shelters or abused family shelters. They have a very bleak outlook on what life has to offer them and need to know they can make a difference in their lives with the power of an education.

My Project

I do several hands-on projects with my students to help increase their interest in the material we cover in English class. As the year begins, the students have projects to complete for me that range from journals to movie posters to costuming for the play, "Julius Caesar", by William Shakespeare. They don't have much at home and I try to provide them with as many of the materials as I can, but I just can't afford to keep replenishing my craft supplies. My students are ridiculously creative and have asked me for all kinds of extra supplies that they can use for the projects they have envisioned for the end of this unit as well as the many more to come. (They are far more creative than I am, that's for sure!)

Please, for many of my students, school is just another thing they have to do until they're old enough to drop out or finally graduate.

Many don't look towards college or technical school primarily because, they don't know what's out there. With budget cuts, my school only offers class in the high school. Craft supplies will open so many doors for them simply by making them proud to display their hard work. Consider giving my students a real chance in the world.
