Mrs. Hawkins from Greenville SC is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

The Best of Me

Help me give my students the chance to create joy for the holidays. Each year, my students create a writing piece that builds self esteem in connection to their family - The Best of Me. We need ribbon, wrapping paper, and 8x10 frames.

My Students

Our school is a Title I School. My students are smart, responsible, and eager to learn. What we do in class is often the only exposure they get as far as reading, studying, or lesson practice.

My students are always ready to try something new and challenging which I believe will help them in reaching their lifelong goals!

As teachers, we supply them with many of their daily classroom supplies, which does not leave us extra money to spend on other things that would make our daily experiences even better.

My Project

We will use these materials to make holiday gifts for my students' familys. The writing helps build self esteem and the picture reminds them of their beauty. The framed work of my students' creative minds allows them to be able to give during the holidays. These gifts are usually the only present my students give to anyone else. They also get to wrap their gift after a "wrapping" lesson. If you could only see the joy and excitement in my students' eyes as they create and wrap gifts (usually for the first time). We have holiday music playing and enjoy a tradition that my own family does every year. It's enough to make even the grinchiest of Grinches' heart grow!
