My Students

My first grade students are becoming more self-aware and our focus on teaching the value of kindness, doing the right thing, honor, trust and telling the truth the first time are reinforced each week as they listen to recorded books read aloud by me through our virtual classroom.

My campus is considered to be a one hundred percent free breakfast and free lunch campus.

This means that my students come from low-income families and often don't have access to the resources I was able to provide in our classroom.

When asked about art supplies at home, many of my students simply don't have any. My students are kind little humans who are excited about being creative and sharing their artwork! This is why I am requesting these much needed art supplies so they can share their artwork virtually and give them a sense of community with their classmates.

My Project

My students no longer have access to our daily fun brain breaks which brought us together as a class. With school closures, they are now focused on getting online assignments done without having the usual moments to talk to each other and share what they're working on with their classmates.

With schools closed, these fun art supplies will help bring students joy at home while we connect virtually by sharing our artwork during our weekly group check-ins.

By donating to our project, you will help encourage creativity and artistic expression during these hard times.

Your donation will bring much needed art supplies to children's homes so they can continue creating and sharing virtually with their classmates. You will ultimately help bring moments of joy and laughter to students who will not get to say goodbye to classmates at the end of the school year due to COVID-19.
