My Students

I am an Art Teacher at Keeven Elementary and I have a total of 388 students from grades Pre-K to 5th grade. The school is located in North County and the students have a multiple level of learning styles and backgrounds.

What makes my students special is that students have enthusiasm for learning and coming to school each day.

They are creative and love to impact their space.

In Art class, students have demonstrated a willingness to take on new techniques and pride in their work at every grade level.

My Project

The materials and supplies that I am requesting for my 360 or more students in collaborative efforts with our sister church to help with distance learning during this unprecedented time.

The basic snack items such as peanut butter and jelly, granola bars,

noodles, and more on the list were provided by one of the counselors and local churches that provides as an outreach point for our students at this time since our school is closed. The gloves and sanitizing products and plastic bags will aid in the distribution efforts. The toiletries, detergents, household supplies are other items that are families are needing.

The art supplies will help my students complete their art activities from afar.- and give them that creative outlet they are missing.

The sketchbooks, loose drawing paper, color pencils, and crayons, will help them create their masterpieces at home.

The donations to this project will help improve my students weekly art activities from home as needed and provide some comfort food as well as basic cleaning supplies.

Your support will help us Beyond our classroom!
