Sylvia Cassell Elementary in San Jose, California serves a student population where 73% receive free lunch and 46% are English Language Learners. A majority of the students come from families with low incomes and limited English language skills. Every day, I strive to instill in my twenty incredible third-grade students, 17 of whom are English Language Learners, the importance of learning, education, and diversity. I am very proud that my students pride themselves as being educational scholars. My students are undoubtedly succeeding in all traditional academic areas (they have already progressed an average of two grade levels in reading comprehension in only one school year). However, they are undoubtedly behind in artistic endeavors. Despite their lack of know-how or materials, my students are facinated by art, and especially by Picasso...I am asking for water colors, paper, and brushes so that my students can take part in something that will be a totally unique exeperience for them. We will paint!
