Mrs. Sarmiento from Covina CA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Crafting for Celebrations

My students need a Cricut Explore Air 2 starter bundle to improve the quality of their student and staff recognition projects.

My Students

My students go above and beyond my expectations on a regular basis. I have the honor and privilege to work with a group of leadership students who tirelessly serve their school and community by celebrating the achievements of those around them and organizing charitable events. From organizing rallies to celebrate academics, to running blood drives on campus to support the City of Hope hospital, my kids give their energy and time selflessly to support their community. Most recently, they repurposed our cross-town football rivalry and turned it into a fundraising opportunity for St. Jude's Children's Hospital, raising nearly $3000 to donate. Meanwhile, our own program lacks some much needed supplies.

35 dedicated students spend an hour everyday in pursuit of celebrating the achievements of others.

Renaissance is a nation-wide leadership program which focuses on recognizing the academic achievements of all students on campus, as well as appreciating the work of faculty and staff members who enable learning.

My Project

My Renaissance Leadership students devote their year to the recognition and celebration of student and staff achievements. Holding firm to the philosophy that everyone on campus matters, they strive to publicize and honor the academic and artistic achievements of as many students on campus as they can, in addition to celebrating the teachers and support staff that make learning possible.

Handmade tokens of appreciation carry a deeper meaning than store-bought goods.

My students are very creative and make a variety of crafts, signs, posters, and treats by hand with the resources available. I know that we can do bigger, better things with the proper equipment! Having the Cricut Explore Air 2 with starter bundle will let us create more impressive recognition awards to honor everyone on campus.
