Mrs. Hathcock from Amory MS is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Pencil and a Dream Can Take You Anywhere.

My students need these materials to start the year off right. My fifth-grade students always need extra pencils and erasers. We will also be using binders in our class this upcoming year.

My Students

We are a small school in Amory, MS. My classes have a combined total of 75 eager learners. Several of whom love to read and enjoy computer work. We are spending several days this year completing online work as well as working together in centers.

We have many low income students who are willing to learn as much as possible.

We have a very close group of students who have grown up together. I have paid for most of the things in my room and I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to ask for help!

My Project

A pencil and a dream can take you anywhere. This is so true. Many of my students come to school without the necessary materials to be successful. All pencils need good erasers for big and small mistakes.

With this project, I hope to give every child in my class an opportunity to achieve their dreams.

We will be using binders to keep up with classroom materials. The dividers will help my students learn to become more organized, which in turn will prepare them for their college or career. The sheet protectors are for neatness as well as helping students stay organized with their binder notes.
