Always Need Supplies!

Help me give my students the supplies they desperately need to be successful in school. The writing journals will be used in class to begin our Project Based Learning project "Place Value in the Wild."

My Students

The population of our students comes from low socioeconomic households, with little or no emotional support. One hundred percent of students receive free lunches, indicating that their families are at the federal poverty level.

Would your child be excited to come to school every day if they had the proper school supplies that would get them through the year or just enough to get their homework completed for that night?

This is what my class goes through each day and night. They have a pencil that is 1/4 inch long with no eraser. Paper is scarce. They can not afford school supplies.

My Project

These materials will make such a huge difference in the quality of work that is completed by my students while working on a Project Based Learning assignment in Math. They will be able to work on their project on paper and a pencils that work.

Many of my students do not have the luxury of bringing supplies from home to complete our Project Based Math Project..

With your helpful donation, you'll be supplying my students with the opportunity to have materials that they desperately need to succeed in school. Our math project that we will be starting consists of my students becoming an Exhibition Scout and picking a location in the world that they would be interested in visiting themselves and researching a habitat for their favorite animal.
