Cricut to Support Creativity!

Help me give my students a cricut to promote creativity and make our school beautiful!

My Students

I am a social skills teacher in Toppenish, WA. Our school has a high migrant population, and all of our students receive free lunch. My students come from a variety of backgrounds and situations, yet, each and every day, they come to school with smiles on their faces and joy in their hearts. I have the privilege of working with all 500 students in our school each and every week. We work on friendship skills, managing our emotions, talking about how we are feeling and more.

My Project

I want our classroom to be a fun place open to all kinds of creativity. The Cricut and accessories will allow students to create posters and projects for class and proudly display their artwork. The die cut in our school is outdated and difficult to work. Cricuts are the future of classroom decoration.

With your help, my students will be excited to come to school and be proud of their classroom.

With the big push on science, math and technology the arts have been left behind. I think that art should not be taken out of the classroom rather integrated into other subject areas. Thank you for helping put art back into the lives of my students.
