This voluntary list is substantial and we would appreciate any help at all with any of the items. If you are able to help sponsor another student in need, any extra materials would also be greatly appreciated. If you are not able to help with any of these items at this time, do not worry. Every child will be provided with the tools they need for the classroom whether they can provide personal items or not.

ABOUT THE MUSEUM SCHOOL
THE MUSEUM SCHOOL is a tuition-free, public charter school that serves students from all over San Diego in Kindergarten through 6th grade. While learning to read, write, do mathematics and science, “learning to learn” is our capstone skill, supported by our “Community Goals” of becoming responsible citizens, productive workers, creative healthy individuals, problem solvers and self-directed learners. The Museum School’s curriculum seeks to go beyond the basics by teaching kids how to learn and opening opportunities to understand why they are learning. Project based departments and enriching classes such as art, music, sewing, movement, and media arts are part of the regular curriculum.
The Museum School celebrates, nurtures and enhances the abilities of all participants through experiential, project-based learning. Infusing the arts whenever appropriate the Museum School utilizes the wealth of resources available at local museums and within the San Diego community.
