Ms. Everett from Detroit MI is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Back to the Basics

My students need these basic self-care items to help with their self-caring skills currently being taught. Kleenex, facial wipes, and hand soap are an important part of our classroom.

My Students

My Pre-K students come from very diverse backgrounds. They are considered high-risk learners due to their socio-economic lifestyles. Many of my students live in single-parent households or are being raised by their grandparents. These types of home challenges qualify them for my program.

My school is a located in inner-city Detroit on a block that is surrounded by abandoned homes and vacant lots.

Despite the location, my school has been recognized as a high performing school by the State of Michigan. My colleagues and I continue to put our students first no matter the challenges facing our school district.

My Project

As mentioned in my class description my school services low-income families. Many of my students don't have the proper winter gear to help keep them warm during the winter. As a result, many of my students keep frequent runny noses.

Kleenex, facial wipes, hand soap and are teachers' best friends!

These items will hopefully help keep the students over the weather instead of under. We use them a lot.

A previous project donated a photo printer to our class. We need more ink and paper so the students can continue to capture their classroom world in pictures for all to see.
