My Students

My students are joyful, fun, and creative. They are always eager to learn. They love using markers and art supplies or just any supplies in general. Most of my students don't have the opportunity to use these supplies at home, therefore, art is a special treat.

Our school consists of grades Pre-K to 5th.

All of our students get art once a week. The students all enjoy creating art that one day during their assigned time. They learn about the different artist and styles of art! Help keep art in our school!

My Project

In our class we do a lot of writing and illustrating. We go through a lot of pencils and a daily basis. These pencils would be a great benefit to have in class just in case one of the students either doesn't have a pencil or left their pencil at home.

Pencils are an essential supply to keep on hand in the classroom.

The students really appreciate having extra pencils in the room - we do a lot of projects and pencils are our main media. It can be sketching or writing - but pencils are what we need - it would be appreciated to have this project funded.
