Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am the writing teacher in a K-5 elementary school. Standardized testing requires all students to have a complete understanding of the writing process and a refined ability to put ideas on paper. Likewise, in a low socio-economic community, not many supplies are afforded by the families of our school. It is difficult to achieve when you are without the needed supplies. I am passionate about writing and teaching children and I am requesting the following for my students: * pkg. of 8 Crayola markers (enough for 150 kids) * pkg. of 64 Crayola crayons(enough for 150 kids) * pkg. of Crayola Colored pencils (for 150 kids) * pkg. of #2 pencils (for 150 kids) * one double pocket folder (150) * one pencil sharpener (150) * wide ruled looseleaf paper (50 pkg.) I truly appreciate your consideration. Thank you so much for your time and contribution.
