Remember how great it felt to have a clean sharp pencil to do your homework? Or your first box of 64 crayons? Or the scent of a new marker? My 2nd grade students at P.S. 115 in Washington Heights often struggle when it comes to providing school supplies. Their parents are hardworking and supportive role models, but money for extras is not always a priority for many families. Some basic school supplies are simply unable to be provided. I am asking for a year's supply of pencils, colored pencils, markers, and crayons for my classroom so that my students may express themselves through their writing and artwork throughout the year. This donation would be used for every child in my classroom, during every subject, throughout every day of the school year. I truly love my first-year teaching position. I know that I have the best job in the world. I want my students to have the basic necessities to become educated individuals. Please help make this request a reality. Thank you for your consideration!
