Ms. S. from Ludlow MO is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Back to the Basics

Help me give my students the supplies they need to be successful in math and science class. The markers and pencils will relieve the burden on students and parents when it comes to basic supplies.

My Students

These 7-11th grade students attend a rural Missouri middle and high school. This school serves pre-k to 12th grade in the same building.

The students learn best when they have the supplies they need to do the work required.

I am looking to help them be able to not worry about some school supplies. This project is to help with basic classroom supplies so students can all be equal and accomplish what is needed in math and science class.

I want students to not worry about if they have the right supplies or if they could not afford something on the class list. Students need to focus on work not on who has what and what they don't have or could not provide.

My Project

These crayons, markers, pencils, and scissors will help students be able to do projects in math and science class. These are basic supplies that every classroom needs. Basic items being donated will relive parents and students from buying supplies and some students not being able to have the supplies required.

Students shouldn't feel upset they don't have the basic classroom supplies and they wont have too with this project.

The graph paper will be used for math and science classes for graphing at all age levels. The colored pencils and markers will be used for different projects during the year.
