RE: MS budget $100 for year

Honestly, tho, Ricardo is right.

It is ridiculous to build a quality art program with that little $. Your supplies are your textbooks!! Furthermore, if you make do with what they give you, the district thinks you can make it work - maybe even with less next year.
The ideas I gave you were from when I taught in public school, and my budget was tight, but not as tight as yours sounds.
Hoping there's more art $ out there, somewhere for your students.

Perhaps some local companies would be willing to make donations or even small grants if your creations somehow support them .

I was recently told that my budget for supplies will probably be about $100
for next year. This is for 6, 7th and 8th grade. About 120 students a day
every day all year.
