Mrs. Coufal Bemowski from Oakland CA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Back to School: Let's Start the Year Off Right!

My students need back to school supplies!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students need new supplies to start the school year off on the right foot.

My students are in the only bilingual kindergarten class at our public school.

They have limited Spanish resources and materials, and this is just unfair. My students love to learn and play and create and discover. Please help them grow this year by providing them with the resources they need.

My Project

I am requesting a variety of materials for the beginning of the school year. We need pencil boxes, puzzles, calendar cut-outs, a number line, and name tags just to name a few. All of the materials I am requesting will directly help the students in my classroom on their path to academic success.

This project is incredibly important and will make a huge impact on my students' success.

For many of my students, this is their first experience in a classroom...ever! Help me make this the best first academic year possible!
