UMA PayPal Giving Fund
UMA Language Arts teachers distributed books to students
to reduce screen time during distance learning.

UMA is asking for your support during this year’s 2020 GiveMN fund drive to help raise $9000 ($30/student) to purchase hands-on learning supplies in all areas of academics, packaged as “school to home kits.” Since we cannot consistently be in the classroom, UMA wants to “bring the classroom to students in their homes.”  

Think about the learning students can experience by participating in class projects, community day activities, or clubs that blend academics, fun, and community building.  Some areas are listed below, many more are obtainable:

  1. Gardening/essential ingredients kits that provide students with their own indoor garden (bulbs and or herbs) materials.

  2. Safe Science - experiment ingredients and equipment

  3. Knitting/crochet/loom kits –  needles, yarn, various looms.

  4. UMaker sewing kit – Sewing supplies, patterns, accessories (buttons, zippers, trim, etc.) and fabric.

  5. Beginning carpentry kit – the “art” of joinery; frame making supplies using limited tools.

  6. Friendship kits – e.g. lanyard bracelet supplies, beading, jewelry making supplies. 

  7. Outdoor Connections - observation and collection kits for use outdoors in all seasons

  8. And the list goes on!!!  (possibly instrument making, a student driven idea yet to be unearthed, or maybe an idea from you!)
