Mrs. Eppley from Cleveland OH is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Basic Needs for Success: Sometimes Boring Is Most Important

My students need pencils and erasers every single day. They should not have to worry about these things.

My Students

My students and most in my school building are of extremely low socioeconomic status. Our students need great support at school as they often do not have typical life experiences. My students may lack a literature and math-filled environment to grow up and learn in at home, causing them to come to school with deficits in their academic growth.

This year I have an especially academically diverse class.

Some students are still working on letter sounds, while others are reading on a fourth-grade level.

My Project

Students in my building are not sent with basic supplies like pencils and erasers. Further, we do not get any extra budget for supplies like card stock. I typically buy these items myself.

The completion of this project would assure that we start the school year off on a positive note.

The card stock will be used for students' behavior charts that go home and back to school every night - regular paper doesn't stand a chance! Poster markers are also included in the project so that I can make bold, bright, enticing posters to guide our every day lessons.
