Bling! Bling! I love opening my binder to study!

Help me give my students supplies to make them excited to come to school! We will be using creative items to decorate their notebooks and binders! Tissues/hand sanitizer to help us thorough winter.

My Students

I work at a middle school of about 1,000 students in the West Portal District of San Francisco.

68% of our students come from low income families making less than $23,000 per year.

Many of our students are coming to school without basic school supplies. This makes completing classwork and homework more difficult. Teachers are often providing out of their own pocket funds to buy supplies to be able to better engage our students. Despite these challenges our students are resilient and show up everyday to school.

My Project

My students who show up to school with interesting and fun school supplies are showing up more passionate and engaged and excited to learn/study.

Majority of my students come from low-income families/households where buying fun/flashy school supplies is not an option.

I will be working with my students to decorate their notebooks and binders to have them create something they are proud of and love. This will better engage my students and fill them with a little more engaged passion to learn something new. Once decorated... We will use organizational training sessions to show them how to better utilize their binders and notebooks.
