I can't express my thanks enough for your donation to my project. It is great to see that others believe in doing all you can to reach and educate children. In art, we so often need to use examples to help students understand the concepts we teach. The projector that you have funded will help me to teach students how to create and understand the concepts and principles of art. In addition, I will be able to demonstrate techniques and lead discussions designed to teach students how to analyze and write about art. The projector has many potential uses and it will be fun to discover all of the ways that we can use it to teach my students. I hope to share with my colleagues new ways and techniques to teach my students about the joys art. Thank you so much. I can't wait to use this tool with the children.

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. This is such a creative way for students to work on reading and grammar. The tools that you have funded will enable students to create and explain their own concepts, as well as work on oral presentations. In addition, I will be able to demonstrate setting, mood, theme, and other genres in literature. I hope to share with my colleagues a new technique in learning and showing them how to flip a classroom so students can learn before coming to school. Thank you so much. I can't wait to introduce these tools to the children.

Thank you so much for your generous contributions to fund my art project through Donors Choose. I will be able to assist my art students in being able to showcase their art through participating in an art auction and preparing their work for exhibition so they can appreciate and value what an artist needs to do to represent his/her work. Your contributions will help buy the supplies and materials to make my goal possible. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this a reality for my students. I will keep you informed on the progress and success of our project.

ASSORTED PICTURE BOOKS
Thank you for your generous donations to my project "Books for the Music Classroom"! Because of your gifts, my project has been completely funded and my students will have a new library of literary resources to be included in our music lessons. The students will be especially excited to use some of these books during center activities or use our instruments to make the stories come to life with music! I can't wait to put the new materials to use!
Thank you for contributing to the ukulele project at our school. My students will be sincerely grateful for your generous support. These new instruments will support skills in the self-discipline of learning a new instrument, creativity in exploring music composition, and collaborating with others. Students will also step outside their normal comfort zone in vocal techniques and production with the help of ukulele accompaniments. With the help of your donation, students will take music with them for the rest of their lives and become advocates of the arts just like yourself. They will help solidify the arts as the backbone of our societal engagement and purpose to make a positive difference in their community and the world as a whole.

Many thanks to all the gracious donors who funded our project. Technology, as part of the national STEM initiative, has become an important component of a high school education. Through your donation of a drawing tablet and a large monitor, students will be able to create better graphics and master a large assortment of software. The more varied technology we expose children to in high school, the less threatening technology training will be as adults in college or in job situations. Again, thank you so much for providing some of the hardware we need to improve our technology classroom. Your donations will certainly be put to use as soon as the technology is in our hands.

Your donation to fund our project fills us with excitement and joy! This opportunity is truly one of a kind, and because of your gracious donation these exceptional individuals are able to participate in an art residency. This experience that you have graciously funded is giving students with significant disabilities, the ability to communicate and engage in social interactions through art education. The students will build confidence and develop skills to apply to their daily lives. Thank you so much for donating to our art residency opportunity! We look forward to seeing growth in these individuals social interactions over the next 12 weeks!

FUNDED: FEBRUARY 19, 2015
I cannot express in words how excited I am to learn that, with your assistance and the donations of others, our project is fully funded. I cannot wait to share the news with my students and colleagues. The tools you have funded for my K-12 classroom will be used and appreciated by all grade levels. No more passing my personal Ipad around the room. My students will be able to select a poster/print to critique and study in small groups. The posters will also provide much curiosity and inspiration as we display them proudly in our classroom. With sincere appreciation and thanks!
Great News! This afternoon, while checking my school email, I was shocked to see one confirming the completion of our fundraising goal. We have, because of all your wonderful donations, met this goal in such a short period of time. Now we are moving forward to submit the purchase of our guitars. The funding you have provided for our instruments will allow students to have hands-on experience making music. You will see us in action very shortly and be able to witness our strumming! Thank you for your donations!
Thank you so much for funding my classroom project to incorporate video making and production into my curriculum. It means a lot to me and more importantly, to my students, that you're willing to fund projects that not only put an innovative spin on teaching and learning the material but also help teach important 21st century skills that will help them way beyond the classroom. I'm excited to let students dive in to the possibilities of what video production can do for them and how to express their thoughts and opinions through them. My district provides an outlet for students to display work like this and with these tools, more of my students will be able to submit something that they're really proud of. Better yet, not only will these materials benefit my current students but also continue to impact my future ones as well. Thank you again for your kindness and support,
Too Cool! Thank you all who donated! Our last saw was on it's final legs and this one will really help my students cut accurately. We strive to produce the best productions possible; with the right tools we can make that possible. This is a very nice saw that will allow students to do their work in a safe way. We will be utilizing this saw all the time. It is the most essential tool found in a theater's scene shop. Again that you all so much. We will be putting this into service as soon as April.

I am so grateful that our students will have awesome mural paint in a variety of colors to use. We have been using standard wall paint. We have only one container of a real miracle paint and it is magenta. Magenta only go goes so far. The mural pain is much easier for the students to use and they love using it. I love that it's durable so that their can last for many years. Our art teacher is sketching out another mural tomorrow. I am working on a mural on the other side of the building currently. It is a large space and all the base work is done. I can't wait for all these wonderful colors to come in so that we can add all the detail work and have more than 10 colors to work with. Our students are so wonderful. They are hard-working, talented, well behaved, and full of joy. They deserve to have an incredible artistic experience. Because I was always in music classes, I never was able to take art class in middle school and high school. Had I been able to paint murals, I would've had more of an artistic experience along with the musical experience. My students can do both at our school. Some can paint during the day and some can stay after and paint. Your generosity is helping our students to become well-rounded artists.
We are SO happy that our project has been funded! Our band classroom is very deficient in any type of technology. Currently we only have a CD player, TV and a VCR player in our room! The recording device will allow the students the opportunity to hear what they sound like from the audience's perspective. The sound system will provide for great sound quality as they listen to themselves and other recordings. The tuners will help the students to understand their instrument's role in the overall sound of the band. Thank you so much!
Thank you so much for your donation! Your generosity will help our middle school students create club t-shirts for after school activities. I am so excited to see these students' ideas come to fruition in the creation of their shirts. This project is going to help students see that art is everywhere and that there are many different careers that involve art. By helping to fund projects like these, you are giving students the opportunity to take their creativity and learning to the next level. Thank you so much!
Wow! Imagine my elation when I discovered that this incredible project, an opportunity to go to the bookstore and share the joy of reading, had been funded--on snow day, no less! Now, please, multiply that surprise and joy by 25 students when they find out about your generosity. THAT is something that they will not forget, nor will I. Thank you so much for supporting my students in their learning. You have provided more than *just* a trip to the bookstore. You have given them a chance to make a lifelong friendship with a great book.
The VAPA (Visual And Performing Arts program) truly appreciate your donations. Personally, I believe arts are essential in every school at every grade. Without art nothing would exist in our world. Your donations have allowed us to inspire these younger students to be creative. It is in the act of being creative we access both sides of our brain. Now, with common core as the standard for learning, the arts must exist in schools. It is through the arts program that we can promote Depth of Knowledge at the higher levels 3 & 4 required by the common core standards. I imagine that soon all academic teachers will work in collaboration with the VAPA teachers giving all students a well rounded higher level education. Your donations help make this possibility and reality.

Thank you so much for funding our Donors Choose project. It has been so exciting to see the project in action. As our piano club has begun, it has become evident that we are in need of more supplies to make it even better. Your generosity will help our club run more smoothly. Your donations will also help our students select fabulous repertoire to play. Just as students are more inclined to read something that interests them, they are more motivated by music they are interested in playing. I know the music books will help our piano students tickle the ivories with even more enthusiasm! Your radical generosity is wonderful!
Thank you for helping my students here in Western NY! My school has an extremely limited music budget, and every bit helps. With these instruments my students can explore different timbres and enjoy playing an instrument they may not have ever played before. My students love playing on new instruments as many of them have never had a music class before. Some students come from alternative schooling situations where music was not a part of the curriculum. Thank you so much for giving this opportunity to my students!
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! We need these materials for the second semester. I just can't thank you enough! We have been using paper rulers the whole first semester. We can finally glaze our clay materials! Watercolor just doesn't fare well with regular drawing paper. The watercolor paper will look amazing! The kids will really appreciate your generosity. It is not often that these kids have much to look forward to. I am happy to present them with materials worth making art with.

Thank you so much for supporting our classroom's goal of being able to finish the writing process and publishing!! My students will be so excited to finally publish all of their writing into class and individual books. This addition will benefit all of our students tremendously. We have 2 current rough drafts that we will now be able to publish! I cannot wait to share this great news with my kiddos tomorrow morning. Thank you again for your generosity. We truly appreciate you!
All of you are extremely sweet charitable people, and MFMS loves you for it! Drama loves you for it! And I love you for it! It's good to know that we have such a wonderful, supportive community. Your children have been so wonderful and they work very hard. I believe this new sound system will help our students take performing arts more seriously. Their hard work will pay off when the audience is able to hear them! Thank you for helping our dream come true!
Thank you so much for your generous donations! My students will use these great writing tablets to write, think, draw, and plan. This amazing resource will help us stay engaged in the learning process and will allow us to utilize technology in a meaningful way! We will use our new writing tablets daily during small group instruction and as an independent tool for all subjects. Thank you again for your generosity!

I am so happy to announce that my project has been fully funded! This is wonderful news to get the day before our winter concert! I am full of so much gratitude and appreciation for your donations and your shared vision in the importance of making music. I knew it would be a challenge to raise this much money and it is truly humbling to know that WHCIS has your support. I cannot wait for you to hear and see our students performing on the risers for their next concert. Seeing their joy and passion for singing on stage could make anyone a believer in the power of making music.
Thank you so much for your generous donations. My class was so excited when they saw the boxes arrived. They couldn't wait for me to open them and see the colors. The stools were a big hit! My students are enjoying using the stools all over the room. They love to pull two stools together and read books with friends. They also love to sit and write stories. When I asked them what they liked best about the stools, they told me that it helps keep their brain moving. I thought that was a good way to explain that they were more on task. Thank you for helping make a more active classroom. My class feels pretty special because of our donations. They are so excited to get to work! Thank you so much for making a fun classroom.
Thank you all so much for your generous support! My students will be so excited to hear that we'll be getting these chromebooks! We will put them to use right away in connecting with international online partners as well as our 2nd-grade partners we will be guiding in a research project. Students will quickly experience more extension activities online, as well as more easily and effectively record their voice, video and compositions. These chromebooks will serve as an important access to our online textbook, and perhaps most importantly, will give in-class Internet access to my students who do not have any connective devices. Thank you again for thinking of my students! Your generosity will not only affect this years' students, but those to come!
Thank you so much for your support of my band program! These books will be used by students who are using instruments as part of our loaner program. These books will enable the students to learn how to assemble and care for their instruments. It will allow them to be able to learn how to read and understand music. The students will also be able to learn some basic music history as well. These books are the main source to teach the kids how to play an instrument. Thank you so much for you donation!
I want to sincerely thank you for your contribution to our classroom project. This donation came at just the right time. We are currently painting our sculptures and are running out of paint. The next project that I had planned is the Paint Nite project, but since we didn't have canvases or acrylic papers I was planning to have them paint on watercolor paper. Now that you kindly purchased the paint and canvases, we can begin our Paint Nite project as originally planned. I cannot wait to be able to send you pictures of our finished works of art. Thanks again. It's the kindness of people like you that keeps the arts going strong.
We are ready to host a workshop for our families to take part in an art project, thanks to you. We've invited each student to come to the workshop with the special man in their life. Together, we will assist the family to create a project that involves the hands of our students and their families. Each pair, couple, or family, will be combining their handprints using warm and cool,colors to show unity within our school community and school family. This project will help boost parent involvement in our school and engage the families through the visual arts. Thank you again, so very dearly for your support.
I cannot thank you enough! These keyboards are fundamental in the development of my classroom curriculum. I recently told my students about these keyboards being funded and they were extremely excited! Once we receive the supplies, I will have the kids hook them up to PC's, sync them to the software programs, and then begin working on music productions right away. These keyboards will be used for many years to come. Thank you again for your generous donations!
I am eternally grateful for the support of loved ones and strangers alike! It is encouraging to know that ALL the donors (you!) have reasons to contribute to a cause such as this. I am remindedthat there are people that love and appreciate the arts and know that in very many cases, a lot can be done with even a little bit. Thank you for supporting me, my students, and the program that I am developing. The supplies I have requested will help add variety to the experiences my students can have in class. I know they appreciate you too!
