My Students

This school year, I will have a group of nervous but eager 9th graders. They are excited about whats in store for this year and the goals that they plan to achieve. Many of my students are living in poverty and often times do not have the resources that they need to be successful. It is important for me to assist my students in any way possible in achieving their goals. Please help them have an opportunity to continue their learning and education.

My Project

These supplies will be given to students at the beginning of the school year and whenever its needed so that they can be successful. In the classroom, students will need these supplies for our various projects and class activities. I plan to implement daily journals and other engaging activities that they will need these basic supplies to complete.

The materials requested are basic school supplies that many of my students are not able to afford due to their financial struggles.

These supplies will provide those students with an equal opportunity towards success. Please help me to provide these supplies to make this school year amazing for everyone.
