Dear Raider Parents,     

I am so excited to have your son or daughter in my Art class this year, and I can’t wait to see the masterpieces that they will create!  This year, the art department at Wylie East High School is requesting that each student pay a $15 supply fee for Art I, a $25 supply fee for Art II/III Photography, or a $20 supply fee for Art II Drawing.  This will allow the department to purchase a wide variety of basic art supplies such as pencils, sharpies, and paper, and it will also help cover the cost of more elaborate supplies such as paint and sculpture materials. In the past, we have had students purchase supply packs on their own and try to keep up with the materials themselves, but we feel that a flat rate class fee would be simpler for parents, students, and the school.

If you are able to pay this supply fee right away, we will be collecting cash or checks made out to WEHS during the first 4 weeks of school. However, we know that the beginning of the school year is a time when finances might be tight, so if you are unable to pay this amount at this time, we also take installments (like $1 or $2 a week), or you can arrange to pay the supply fee at a later date.

I am also collecting some general supplies for the classroom. These include Kleenex, scotch tape, pencils, empty cereal boxes. If your student brings any of these supplies to donate to the class, he/she will receive one additional 100 as a daily grade. Students will not be penalized in any way if they choose not to donate supplies.


We would love for you to follow us on Facebook: Raider Nation Art and on Instagram: @raidernationart

Finally, I often display student artwork at school, WISD Celebrate the Arts, and various art exhibitions throughout the year.  If you DO NOT want your child’s work displayed, please fill out and return the form on the bottom of this page.  You do not have to return anything if you want your child’s work to be displayed.

I’m looking forward to this school year!  Please feel free to contact me if you ever have any questions or concerns.
