Ms. Rybak from Indianapolis IN is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Back to School 2020-2021

My Students

My 26 kindergarten students attend a Title I elementary school in Indianapolis. The students in our school come from a wide range of cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Our school is very diverse, but all of our kindergarten students come to school excited to learn and play each day!

My Project

This project has a little bit of everything in it! I have included many of our wishlist items for a smooth start to the 2020-2021 school year.

When my students come to my classroom I don't want their families to worry about whether or not they can provide their student with all the necessary supplies.

While we do send home a school supply list and classroom wishlist, not every family is able to provide all of the items on the list. This project is a mix of items students need individually as well as items for us to use as a class throughout the year.

After taking inventory of our cabinets, I have determined that we are in need of construction paper, brightly colored copy paper for parent newsletters, multicultural crayons, mini pencils, watercolor paint sets, paint dabbers, motivational stickers for small group rewards, LEGO bricks to refill our building bin, markers for making anchor charts, folders for writer's workshop, a wireless doorbell for classroom management, and prizes for our class treasure bin.

These items would help ensure we had everything we needed to start the year off right!
