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

School Supplies for Success

My students need basic school and art supplies such as pencils, markers, paper, and scissors to sustain them for the remainder of the school year.

My Students

I work at a wonderful, family oriented school Title 1 Program Improvement school with awesome students! The majority of our families are considered to be low to low-middle income with many living below the poverty line. More than one-third of our students speak English as a second language.

Our school is fortunate enough to offer extra assistance and enrichment when needed.

We have a part-time intervention teacher who spends 100% of her day on student academic intervention. Our school is lucky enough to have three Autism specific classes with students who mainstream into general education classes throughout the day. We have a resource class for special education students and for those who need extra help, a garden teacher (paid for by a generous grant) that works with the students on the Next Generation Science Standards, volunteers who come read with and/or tutor our students several times a week, and many teachers who run intervention and enrichment classes after school.

My Project

Each and every spring, we begin to run out of both classroom supplies and money to purchase said supplies. Our markers and watercolors are dried up, colored pencils and pencils are nubs, scissors are broken, and we are out of art paper.

My students love to use their creative sides to express what they have learned.

We are currently learning about the California Gold Rush and my students are working on booklets to show what they have learned. Many have expressed interest in a lunchtime art class where we could learn about different artists and recreate works of arts. Others just need pencils and the like to complete their daily assignments. These supplies would help us complete all of these projects and more!
