Thank you so much for the steel pans. The kids are having a blast playing melodies and rhythms on the steel pans and simply can't get enough. The instruments are very playable for beginners since the notes are written on the pans. One great moment took place when our trumpeter decided to show the other students how to properly play the pans. The over-exaggeration of his movements created a priceless moment for the class.

When the students first saw the steel pans, they immediately ran to them and started looking for mallets. After having a conversation with them on how to treat and care for the pans, I gave the kids the rubber-tip mallets and let them jam. The students figured out the melody to Lean On Me and proceeded to play the song for a good bit with the rhythm section. The second day of having the instruments, the students showed to school with bandannas from the Caribbean, once again, a priceless moment.

The next steps will be to incorporate the pans into the school's stage band performances. Through graduations, talent shows and similar venues, the students will continue to develop and build confidence playing the pans and connecting with the Caribbean.

Thank you so much for donating to our Makerspace project. Our students have really been enjoying the use of the Legos, the duct tape, and the K'Nex. We're looking forward to integrating the other donated supplies into our lessons this year.

This summer, many of the new Coleman Environmental Science and Engineering Academy students attended a Summer Bridge camp in July and August. They learned how to work in the Makerspace, created a wind-powered vehicle as a project, and demonstrated it to their parents in a multi-curricular unit of study. They had a lot of fun, doing it, too.

We now have two Lego tables that were made with Lego plates and recycled library tables. They are great to use in class and before school with the Legos that were purchased as part of this project. One of our savvy students said that we're trying to create new architects for the future. 

Every time the future architects and engineers come into the library to use the Makerspace, I can see the joy of creating in their eyes. The students are engaged and excited to be learning. Thank you so much for contributing to our MakerSpace and to the education of our wonderful children at Bessie Coleman Middle School.

Thank you again for your incredible donation. My students have jumped head first into exploring the incredible world of virtual reality games, experiences, and design. Virtual Reality has given my students a new way to interact with history, art, science, and more. From Airborne 1944, where students are jumping out of a DC-47 on D-Day, to Google Tilt Brush, where students can paint and sculpt in 3D, my students have had the opportunity to explore incredible worlds, solve puzzles and murder mysteries, to traveling the globe, and create works of art. One incredible experience required students to use team work to diffuse a bomb before time ran out. While one student held a manual and read instructions, the second student was in the virtual world turning the bomb over and trying to defuse it. It was incredible to watch the students come together and work as a team.

Having the opportunity to be transported to unfamiliar places without having to physically leave the classroom is the most exciting prospect to my students. Additionally, having the opportunity to explore the more the practical applications virtual reality has in engineering, space exploration, and the creation of art. My students have had the opportunity to work in a virtual recreation of the International Space Station, completing missions using scientific instruments. This was a dream come true for at least one of my students. Another student relished the idea of going into the countryside to solve a murder mystery. He had to explore an old house and avoid a confronting the murder before he had solved the case. Yet others had the opportunity to race cars around some incredible tracks located in various places in the world. 

Several of my students had the opportunity to begin building their very own virtual reality game: Shoot Hoops. This is a simple game where you have a series of basketballs and three hoops to shoot them into. This was a huge inspiration to my students and has encouraged them to move on into advanced computer science classes, game design, animation, and 3D modeling. Even more, they were excited to go tell their friends about the incredible technology they have access to, causing our computer science program to more than double in size for the next school year. 

Dear donors, your donation is changing kid's lives every day. Thank you so much. We are eternally grateful.

We can not begin to thank you enough for your generosity. My students and I were so excited when we received the supplies that you gave to us. The following day we did a Valentine's day project with the construction paper that you sent to us and they were so happy! We even made it into a bulletin board for the hallway. I will be sure to upload a picture of that for you. For Dr. Seuss day we covered our door with some of the construction paper as well. It has been so nice to work with the children on projects and not have to worry about independently purchasing all of my materials.

My students were very eager to write their thank you cards with their brand new pencils. Through out this year we have had to "make due" with the pencils that we have. They are not the best, and they are short and have little to no erasers left. With my own money I have purchased erasers and extra supplies but it can be very expensive with a larger class. I thank you again immensely for contributing to our classroom supplies.

Our next step is to utilize our new writers notebooks. We are going to use them for our readers response notebooks. I will be teaching my First graders how to respond to different texts in which they have read. They will write a readers response and then draw a picture to accompany it. I am so excited to start this with them.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Thank you again for your generous donations. Our mouthpieces and stands arrived just in time for our spring concert (the picture of the band on stage from above is the dress rehearsal for that concert). The students were extremely excited to use the new stands and were ecstatic that they no longer have to share or fight over stands during rehearsals. With our band growing and becoming more successful (we received I's at our district contest in March), we are looking forward to improving even more. The new stands and mouthpieces have been a huge help this semester. Below is a link to our performance at the NMAA State Concert Band Contest.

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,
Mr. C.
