Projects Help Us Learn!

My students need construction paper to help with project based learning. Art is not funded by our state and kindergarten students need art to reinforce skills.

My Students

Can you imagine a 5 years old not being able to cut and paste? This is what our students are facing without art supplies in the classroom. Students are no longer able to draw and create projects based on the lesson.

Our students are first time learners.

Most of our class has never been to school and this is their first experience in a classroom. 70% of our school is free/reduced lunch and we are a Title I school. Most experiences our children receive are based solely on what they receive from 8:00-3:00. Many of our children do not have art supplies at their home.

My Project

Five year old children will remember the projects they create when they are able to take home art projects for their parents to save. Many parents today will have their child's art projects as a keepsake. We want our children to have this opportunity. Every story we read, we would love to be able to create an art project based on that story. Every holiday, we would love to be able to create an art project based on that holiday.

Please remember that an art budget is no longer available to us.

We have zero dollars to buy anything related to art. Please remember that 5 years old children still need art projects as a part of their developmental learning. Art is so important to our school.
