My Students

Learning, community, friends. This is what our little rural school is all about! Our students do not have a lot at home, so they view school as a safe place not only to get a good education, but also to get a good meal or new clothes. Some of them are here from sun up to sun down, through various after school programs, waiting for their parents to finish work.

Despite the hardships associated with a small, rural school, our children are resilient, loving, and excited to learn.

They just need the resources to help them reach their full potential.

My Project

As the art teacher at a low-income, rural school, I love to see my students get super excited about art and art history, as well as art production. Their faces just light up when they get to see their artwork displayed in the hallways for everyone to see!

Pride in their artwork is something that every child can achieve, regardless of academic ability or socioeconomic status.

However, right now we have limited resources to hang these art projects in the hallways. For our school, I am able to hang about 1/10 of the projects that my students complete.

I believe that every child should be able to see their hard work showcased in our school's public hallways. I am asking for donations to purchase display rails to hang along the halls that can hold lots of student papers at one time. This will enable us to display more of our students' work and increase their pride in their own achievement. Thank you for your help!
