Let me start by telling you how truly grateful we are! I wish you could have been present for the reaction from my sweet kiddos when they found out that we had new supplies to use. Cheers erupted from class after class when I broke the news. They were amazed that complete strangers from so far away would take notice, and donate to them.

We have put the markers and watercolors to good use. Kindergarten and first grade spent their time creating beautiful water color paintings. I gave them the freedom to come up with their own designs, and the creativity truly amazed me. The second through fifth graders were tasked with creating optical illusions. We outlined in sharpies, and colored our mind benders with the Crayola markers. It was a lot of fun!

We have many more projects planned, and we can't wait to get them underway. The kids have thoroughly enjoyed having something other than crayons to use. Your generosity has opened up a whole new world of possibilities for them. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Thank you so much for your contribution to my photography class. My photography students were thrilled to have another opportunity to work in the traditional darkroom. They love the tactile experience of working with the photographic chemicals and paper. 

The Cliche Verre process was a continuation of their photogram experience. In order to learn the steps for processing photographic paper, my students produce photograms. Photograms are contact prints. The students bring in items that vary in transparency, lay them on the photographic paper, expose the paper, remove the items, then process the photographic paper. They learn the times for the developer, stop bath, fixer, and wash. The darkroom is such a fun photographic experience, I wanted to find another project for them to do in the darkroom.

The Cliche Verre project was the perfect choice. It is also a contact print process. This time, rather than bringing in objects, the students drew on acetate to create a negative. They used the india ink and calligraphy pens to draw on the clear acetate. After they created their drawing, they were able to lay the acetate on the photographic paper and make a photographic print.

After the students dried their prints, we scanned them into the computer. They used Adobe Photoshop to invert their images, making the blacks white and the whites black. I gave the students a choice as to which print they liked better. 

Finally, the students mounted their favorite version of their print. Not only are we submitting them here, but I am also entering them into a local exhibition. This exhibition is called Student Gallery. Art students from all over Tidewater will be participating in this juried show. I am so pleased to have cliche verre prints to enter.

Thank you so much for your support!

We are so HAPPY to have these guitar and ukulele straps! Before we got them, my disabled students struggled to hold their instrument while they played. Now, with the help of these straps, my students feel much more secure and show that by strumming their instruments freely and not dropping their instruments as often. Next we will be working on strumming patterns, and learning to play along with some of our favorite songs.

When I first showed students the new straps, I told them about the way Donor's Choose works. Orlando was amazed; "You mean people out there just GAVE them to us because you asked?" he asked. I used this opportunity to talk about generosity, and how some people can afford to be generous with their money (many of my students' families cannot), while others can afford to be generous with their time. I asked them to 'pay it forward' by helping someone else in need, whether it is someone in school that needs help practicing math facts, or someone at home who needs help getting a job done. 

Donors, Thank You for being role models in generosity! My impoverished and disabled students struggle in so many ways. So many of them live at poverty level, have physical disabilities that limit their movement, diseases that severely impair their health, or learning/emotional disabilities that prevent them from learning and functioning as you or I do. I wish I could give you the gift of the delight and wonder I sensed in them when they realized someone cared enough to give them things that will help them succeed!

This is unreal! We were fully funded on Thanksgiving Day. There's so much to be grateful for this year, and we appreciate your support. We've been dreaming of this project since our first day of school. We can't wait to get outside and begin working with the new technology. We've already created over 20 newscasts this year, and we are looking forward to starting off the new year with our updated newscast introduction! We hope this project will not only inspire the school, but also the rest of our community too.

Thank you for your belief in our vision. 

And ps. We can't wait to show you the finished product.

Thank you for your generous contribution to my student's learning experiences. We are so excited about our wonderful supplies. The students were very anxious to begin using the things that were given to them. We have started to put our supplies to use by creating and mailing out Thank You cards to you our Donor. We will not be able to spread our BUTTERFLY wings until the weather is warmer. However, the box is in constant sight giving us something to look forward to!

As we opened the boxes that you sent, the students could not help but allow their mouths to drop from the sight of the material that you have sent. They at once wanted to search, touch, and experience everything. It was like Christmas in September.

The next steps for my classroom is to continue creating great learning centers for my students to continue with their learning process. The more innovative learning centers that are available to them gives them a choice and voice while also enhancing the connection and application of concepts in their studies.

Again, thank you for making so many students smile and look forward to a bright academic learning year.

I don't know where to begin to describe the huge impact that the fans have had in my classroom. These first few weeks of school have been incredibly warm and humid and the fans have done an excellent job of keeping me and my students comfortable as we move around the space in my drama class, playing acting games and performing for each other.

I have a number of students taking another one of my courses this year and every one of them has commented on the addition of the fans and how much more comfortable the classroom is compared to last school year. They also love to share "horror stories" with their current classmates of the way things used to be. 

My theater production students have been working in groups to build theater model boxes and having the fans in the space have encouraged groups to work IN the classroom on tables as opposed to working on the floor in the hallway where many used to seek refuge. As a result, I'm able to keep a closer eye on their progress and intervene when needed to ensure that their projects are measured, cut, and assembled correctly. Needless to say, this year's model boxes are heads and shoulders above what they used to be. 

The level of comfort of students is directly connected to their ability to succeed and I am so grateful for your generous donation and the impact it has had in my class. The students and I now enjoy being in the space and we're now able to focus on the task at hand and no longer on how hot the classroom can get.

With gratitude,

If you are reading this, it is because someone as caring and supportive as yourself gave a future language arts teacher opportunities to appreciate and practice the written word. It is with this spirit of giving back that I thank you so much for allowing me, through your generosity,to afford my students a supportive writing environment as well. The table, pencil sharpener and comfortable chairs will now allow my students a unique and inspiring place in my classroom to put their pencils and ideas to work!

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.
