Back To Basics!

Help me give my students pencils, glue sticks, sticky notes, and Kleenex to be successful in the classroom!

My Students

Our students come from a variety of economic and cultural backgrounds. Our students' families face many challenges (i.e., shelter, food, clothing, etc.). We are a low-income school in North Carolina.

My mission is to provide an environment where students have all the resources they need to be academically successful.

Our students have limited resources and academic opportunities. They have very few opportunities to explore new worlds, so we try to visit as many places as we can through books. When students have new books to read, they are more motivated to read.

My Project

As a teacher, it is imperative to have supplies for students to use. Students often come to school without the basic supplies to be successful. Therefore, teachers must be prepared for the unexpected and to have resources/supplies available for students to be academically successful. With this in mind, I am asking for donations to purchase basic school supplies.

Basic needs like pencils, glue sticks, and sticky notes help students to engage in lessons, and to gain knowledge they can bring back to their community to improve overall welfare.

Students in my classroom come from a variety of backgrounds. Some of my students have limited food and clothing at home. They should not have to worry about basic school supplies, such as pencils, glue sticks, etc. Also, as cold and flu season approaches, it is important to have Kleenex, Clorox Wipes and hand sanitizer readily available to reduce the incidences of sickness in the classroom. Therefore, this project was created to help supply the basic needs of my students.
