This spring, Public - Supply teamed up with Brooklyn-based artist, Edward Granger, to bring some of his trademark color to our notebooks (and hands). This collaboration culminated with a trip to Achievement First Middle School in Bushwick, where Mr. Granger introduced students to the art and science behind mural painting. Using geometry and color theory, Granger worked with students to create a vibrantly colorful large-scale mural based on abstractions of a Rubik’s Cube. 

Edward Granger (B. 1989 in South Louisiana) lives and works in New York.  His aesthetic plays with the underlying graphs, threads, and fibers of color space.  Technologies behind print and digital images through collage and large scale painting, allowing the threads and fibers to work together in various spatial, line and color pattern techniques.

Thank you for giving my students the opportunity to do a large scale project that wouldn't otherwise be possible. We are going to have so much fun and learn about other cultures while we're at it. My students are hard working and focused. We have shown our art in multiple venues and received lot of positive feedback and praise for our efforts. We give back to the community by donating our work to senior centers and hospitals, so you are also helping the people in our community by letting us make more art! 

Thank you for making a difference in everyone's year!

Words can't express my gratitude! My students and I are so excited! Thank you for making our dreams a reality. We are overjoyed. 

My students are very important to me. They have always wanted to have a school band, but could not afford to purchase or rent instruments. We have been trying to start the band program for a long time and now we have enough instruments for every student. The "Build-A-Band" project would not be possible without your help. 

My students are looking forward to building proficiency on musical instruments and experiencing all that playing in a band has to offer. Your gift will always be remembered as generations of music students are educated through our program. Thanks again.

I can't express my gratitude and thanks for your donation to my project. The word of "new speakers" coming to the dance room has put smiles on all of our faces.

The tools that you have funded will enable students to imagine, create, and perform beautiful movements. In addition, the students will gain an ownership to what they produce in class and will achieve a new sense of pride and confidence in themselves.These speakers will be great!! 

Thank you so much. I can't wait to introduce these tools to the students.

Thank you so much for your generous donation. The students in my biology classes will enjoy this skeleton for many years. We are so grateful that you share a passion for the sciences and understand the importance of all children gaining equal access to materials such as these. 

Learning about human anatomy from a book can only take you so far. Having this skeleton in the classroom will give students the hands-on experience that it really takes in order to gain a sufficient understanding of how a human body functions. 

Again we thank you for your generous donation!

I am truly thankful right now. I didn't think this was going to get funded but I am so happy and excites that it did. I truly appreciate you all and the contributions you have given my students. They will love the materials and have fun with science now. I can't wait to show and share with them the news when we go back to school in the fall. Thank you again and look forward to sharing the fun and exciting pictures with everyone! I'm excited! Yay!

Every student deserves to sit on a clean, spacious carpet, everyday to learn and grow. And by funding this project, you just gave these children so many reasons to be thankful. So from all of class 128, thank you!!!

School Model Cello

 


Thank you all so much for your generosity! I will be so excited to add a cello player to our ensemble. I have so many students who would like to play cello this coming year. We rent the two cellos that we have so it will be great for the orchestra and school to have their own. The difficult part is deciding who will get to be the next cellist. I am very grateful that there are donors such as your self, that give to schools like mine. I have extremely talented students and they will take great care of our new instrument.

Thank you so much for donating to students and astrophotography. With theses supplies, we have all the supplies we need to take pre-programmed pictures of stellar objects at night. Students will submit proposals for telescope time, Mr. O will program the telescope accordingly, the telescope and camera will take the exposures, and students will access and analyze their results in the classroom using the software. Practical astronomy is now available to my students. NOT POSSIBLE WITHOUT YOUR HELP!

Just wanted to express a heart felt thanks. It's been a grey year at school for technology. Its the first year that our school participated in the Lego Robotics Competition and the kids loved it. With these kits I can teach more students how to program robots while teaching them valuable math and critical thinking skills. 

It's amazing how much more focus kids have when you're teaching them something that is also fun. Your donation has made it possible.

I am extremely humbled by your donation to my project. As a teacher, it is my nature to always put my students' needs before my own, therefore I was quite leery of posting a project for personal and professional growth. However, knowing individuals like each of you value supporting teachers and our quests to improve as educators is inspiring. 

The equipment you donated will help me hone my technology skills so I can effectively create new technology experiences for my students. My STEAM club dabbled in video productions this year, but it was limited by a lack of resources. Your generosity has assisted with this dilemma and will bring a new sense of excitement to the upcoming year. 

By taking the time to invest in me, you have ultimately invested in the lives of many inner city youth who will be exposed to new technology tools and programs.

Thank you so much for your generosity. Your contributions have paved a way for us to provide our students with an opportunity to obtain a training certificate in Design, Coding and Biotech Engineering. They will have the opportunity to watch their designs come alive and influence change in our local community. These designs will one day be used in future urban planning projects.

We hope to send you all great photos of our community impact designs in the near future.

Thank you so much for helping to fund our "Glaze It" project! This will make a lasting impact on many teenagers' lives. When they see their finished glazed pieces they are so incredibly happy! Even students that didn't seem to be as invested in their projects, are excited when their glazed pieces come put of the kiln! With this glaze, many students will make creations that will potentially last long past their own lifetimes. 

Thank you sooooo much for your help!

WOW! We are so excited to be using these laptops to research, produce, and publish artwork. The projects we are researching will not only educate students about global issues but empower them to educate others through the arts. With your support I will now be able to grant access to resources online to students, and encourage them to publish their work on webpages, blogs, and more. We will be able to edit photographs of work, digitally produce content using programs such as Photoshop, and create professional looking results. I am so excited to help update our classroom to 21st century production methods using these laptops! Your generosity is truly appreciated.

Thank you all for your generous donations to help my class have great new materials! The instruments are sure to enhance the musical learning experience of all my classes. All of my students (approximately 800) love playing instruments in music class. There are so many possibilities with multiple sets of pitched boomwhakers and bells to differentiate instruction and needs of all of my students. 

The subscription to the Music Educator's magazine, MusicK8, will give my students fun music to accompany with their instruments. We will be sure to use all materials for classroom instruction and presentations for both parents and the community. Thank you again for your donations.

I am a fourth grade teacher at an elementary school and I teach all subjects. Our school has a predominately minority student population. We are also an urban, low socio-economic, title one school with limited funding.

I would like to use the BAM experience to empower my culturally diverse group of students. The goal is for students to learn about the cultural commonalities that exist among themselves as well as celebrate their similarities and differences.

With the "Legend Has It: School-Time Performance at BAM, I could really address Language, Reading, Writing Common Core Standards in a more meaningful way. I want to encourage students to reenact and/or rewrite legends by incorporating what they've learned from our Ready Gen curriculum and each performance. I am encouraged that these experiences will improve students writing and the understanding of curriculum goals, as well as common core standards.

As much as explicit instruction and close reading strategies are beneficial to student achievement, I feel positive that these exciting experiences will foster a deeper love for learning.

I am so blessed to be the recipient of such a generous gift!

Thank you donors for making an investment as well as an impact on the lives of my first graders. They are so deserving of such a fun, contemporary, yet classic toy that allows them to have an outlet from academic demands. I am overjoyed for my students as they will be able to build, create, imagine and interact socially with each other through the gift of legos. 

Happy Holidays! Thank you and God Bless.

Without your help this would not have been possible. You haven't just given these students recording equipment. You've given them evidence that the work they produce is valuable and that people care that their projects are of a professional quality. How else will these students be productive members of society if not with the inspiration given by people like you? How else will these students learn what it means to be a citizen of this world without the evidence demonstrated by your generosity?

You are helping these young people understand the value of a community that cares, a community that shares the view that education matters, that education is essential to a life that is full. Thank you for this.

I will share these news with my students as soon as possible. I can't wait to see their faces light up.

I can't fully express my joy, excitement, and thanks for your donation to my project. It is great to see that you share my vision for reaching children.

The tools you have funded will enable my class to have a mobile technology station where they can access district learning programs. In addition I will be able to set up other learning games and children can buddy up to learn reading and math skills. 

I can't wait to share this new resource with my class!!
