Jul/26/2016 John Muir Fundraiser

Posted by lgannon • July 26th, 2016

Dear Friends,


Earlier this year, our neighbor Haight Street Art Center and several community organizations collaborated to bring a silk screen artist to our school.  Gary Houston absolutely delighted our students by hand-screening artwork they did in class with their art teacher Ms. Wlodarczyk.


We cannot get enough of this kind of enrichment for our students, but we sorely lack funding, as you know.  Haight Street Art Center has stepped up to help us raise $7,500 to support more art programs at John Muir.




Support from the community makes a huge difference in our ability to offer students a quality education in an enriching environment.  It takes a village to make this happen, and you are our village!




Please be generous with whatever contribution you can make today.  Haight Street Art Center and many local businesses are offering thank-you gifts.  We hope you’ll enjoy them!



Shawn Mansager

Estimados Apoderados (instead of Apoderados you can also use Vecinos y Amistades de John Muir Elementary)


A comienzo de este año, nuestro vecino Haight Street Art Center y otras organizaciones de la comunidad colaboraron para traer el serigrafista Gary Houston. Tuvimos el placer que el Señor Houston hiciera serigrafías de las pinturas que los estudiantes habían hecho anteriormente en la clase de la Señora Wlodarczyk.


Nos encantaría poder traer más experiencias como esta, a nuestros estudiantes pero como ustedes saben, no tenemos fondos necesarios en este instante. Haight Street Art Center nos esta ayudando a lograr la meta de $7,500 dolares para ayudar los programas de arte en el colegio John Muir.

Con su ayuda podemos lograr tener un gran impacto en la educación de los estudiantes con oportunidades como esta. Le pedimos su contribución, cualquier monto que puedan donar. El Haight Street Arts Center y otras organizaciones están ofreciendo regalos a los donadores y esperamos que ustedes los disfruten.
