Mrs. Perkins from Fresno CA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Primary Classroom Makes Their Mark with Fun and Creative Projects

My students need a fun and creative way to finish projects and classroom gifts. They need a Silhouette Cameo.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I teach school in a very special community that is diverse in ethnicity and socio-economic status. At my school, 64% of the students qualify for low income and about 18% of our population are English Language Learners.

The students in my kindergarten classroom love learning and have a genuine curiosity to know more about the world around them.

They are hard workers and come to school every day ready to work through challenges and encourage friends to do the same.

As a kindergarten teacher, I am constantly blown away by the progress my students make every year and the no-quit attitude they take into first grade.

My Project

Every primary teacher needs the ability to make their classroom an fun and creative environment. In the world of public education today, only the basic necessities are funded and, sometimes, not even those. I chose the Silhouette Cameo as a way to add the fun and creative finishing touches to a primary classroom and our projects.

Students love seeing their name personalized on their own classroom materials or choosing an image to decorate their project.

With the Silhouette Cameo I can give the students ownership of their spaces in the classroom and give them some creative license over their classroom projects.
