Ms. Aybar from New York NY is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Cri-cut To Creativity

My students need art supplies that they are excited to use. A Cricut machine and enough vinyl to make t-shirts, hats or posters that speak to them will make our classroom and school unique.

My Students

My students and I first met in 4th grade. We enjoyed our time so much that we decided to move on to 5th grade together, which is the last grade for our school. As soon as the move was approved, my students were overcome with "senior-itis" and began planning all the events and activities that would take place this year, most notably- the "senior" trip.

My students are all from low income families and all are eligible for free meals with very limited resources for non-essential items.

The expense of a trip, even one for educational purposes isn't one that many can incur.

My children are studious, conscientious, good citizens. They take their education very seriously and are well aware that if granted this amazing opportunity, it is not one that they can take lightly.

My Project

As we move towards our last month in Elementary school, my students want to leave a "mark" on the school they've attended for years. We discussed making special t-shirts or hats using the Cricut machine thanking the staff here. We would use the vinyl to "award" them a special shirt (World's greatest Art teacher) and posters/wall decals with the vinyl decals to leave inspirational "markings" for the classes coming up after them. The Cricut machine is the way to make these designs come to life.

We have had great teachers impact our lives while in Elementary school.

This is a fun and creative way to thank them and the best way to leave our "mark".
