My students come from low socioeconomic backgrounds and are eager to come to school to learn.They work hard and strive to do their personal best each and every day, despite the hardships their families face. We are a large neighborhood school where many families are within walking distance but we do not have much parental involvement. I would like to use the donations as a way to enrich my 3rd graders' lives and to keep them motivated to reach a high level of success.
These new headphones will help to replace our broken headphones. It will allow us to do our reading work online as well as math work. Our district requires that we use certain online applications, which have sound and with our broken headphones we have had to have many students work with the volume features off. The students do not benefit from not having the sound on and it has interfered with their learning. With new headphones we will be able to have stories read to us aloud as well as math problems, especially for students who are academically low and are learning to read . By having the proper equipment, we will be able to learn and grow. Our students do so much on the Chromebooks that it is essential for them to be ready to go for the day with the right set of equipment.
