Back to School, With a SMILE!
Help me give my students the supplies needed to achieve success in the 2020-2021 school year.
I am a first grade teacher at a Title I school, where our English Language Learners make up about 66% of our student population. The majority of my students come from a low socioeconomic background and have faced many challenges in their six or seven years of life.
With so many parents being out of work, this year's back to school season is going to be especially stressful for my students and their families.
I know that they will be excited to meet their new teacher and see their friends, but there is a high probability that the majority of parents will be unable to purchase the supplies needed for their child to succeed.
I want school to be a source of joy for my students. I want them to know that they are loved and supported. I want to give them the opportunity to come to school each day and be enthusiastic to learn, free of anxiety.
My project will enable my students to get the necessary supplies to be successful at school this year, from the beginning to the end. I want all of my students to feel loved and supported. Pencils, scissors, crayons and notebooks are basic needs for learning achievement in first grade.
By providing my students with the needed supplies, I can help ease anxiety and make back to school an exciting time for them.
With your help, I can provide my students with the things they need to be successful and worry free as they embark on their journey through first grade.
