My Students

My 6th-grade superstars are always eager to learn. They love projects and activities that are fun and educational at the same time. They love to have fun as they learn.

Most of the students in my school come from a low social economic background which is why I need essential materials.

Students have limited access to resources such as technology or other materials to create or complete projects. I would love for all of my 6th-grade students to create wonderful projects without the worry of not having the necessary materials to create their work or piece of art.

My Project

With the end of the school year approaching, it is inevitable to feel sadness, my students will be missed. As they say, "The show must continue". I want to start preparing for another successful year. This is why I need your help!

I will need these materials to insure that my students have what they need while having fun by creating fun standard based projects.

I want my student to begin the year set for success, this can only happen with your help. I have already purchased many arts and crafts items such as many bottles of paint, beads, and construction paper but it will really be nice to have paint brushes instead of using q-tips for painting projects. Thank you in advance for donating to this project.
