My Students

I am going to be teaching incoming 7th graders that missed out on the second half of 6th grade. These students are coming from 5 different elementary schools to 1 middle school and are worried about many new things already.

We are hoping to help them feel as normal as possible and being able to provide each student with their own calculator will start them off on the same foot.

My Project

This school year students are unable to share classroom supplies. Many of our students are not able to afford these extra materials for the year. Each student will need their own calculator in order to support their math learning.

Your donation will provide students with their own calculator to use for multiple years of school!

By providing each student with a calculator it will help their confidence to work towards higher level math understanding. It will help students to not become stuck on a math problem over the struggle of memorizing multiplication or division facts.
