Mr. Castillo from Austin TX is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Stress Free Mind Is a Open Mind

My students need and deserve the essential supplies that create healthy, safe classrooms. Included in this project is notebooks, markers, tissues, and wipes.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our classrooms are filled with many diverse, creative minds. Being a Title I school with low economic children, who many times are unable to provide the necessary supplies needed to provide a better education, it is important that we as community step in and help support these students and parents. We, as a school, want to help ease the stress on our parents, who many times have multiple children attending school, help them to provide supplies they are unable to purchase. The goal is to relieve that worry and have parents concerns be on educational support.

My Project

The supplies such as wipes and facial tissue will keep teachers from having to send their students home when "potty" accidents happen, which can happen quite a bit in our younger Pre-Kindergarten 3 and Pre-Kindergarten 4 classes. These essential supplies will help keep their classrooms clean and healthy for a better, safer learning environment.

The supplies that are being requested are very difficult for many of our parents to provide.

Markers and notebooks help with meeting the needs of classroom learning stations for our STAAR testing grades. These items are a very high need for the overall learning and well being of our students and would be greatly appreciated!
