Mrs. Grannell from Pflugerville TX is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

The Degas of Tomorrow!

My students need the materials necessary to complete a cultural art project using a variety of medias such as oil pastels.

My Students

Our students come from undeserved communities. Their families struggle to make ends meet most days and also continue to fear stability of their current living situations in our country due to new immigration laws. Our school ensures students feel safe, loved and respected so they are able to focus on what matters- earning quality education to change the cycle that has come before them. One of our values is whatever it takes- my staff embodies this value by doing whatever it takes each day to ensure our students can focus on their academics and one day lead a successful life.

My Project

The art materials I am requesting will allow 3 entire grade levels to construct the end product of a beautiful piece of art work. This piece of work will represent who they are and have a piece of their culture in it as well. The pieces will then be displayed during a "student showcase" evening and students K-2 will have to have a small oral presentation prepared to give about their artwork. Parents and visitors will do a gallery walk to as many students as they would like to see the final products as well as learn about they students. This project will build fundamental skills in the arts as well as public speaking skills in our youngest students. Can you imagine a Kindergarten student giving a small oral presentation about a piece of art work they use. Discussing how they used the media of oil pastels and how they felt while doing it?
