Ms. Dockens from Porter TX is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Card Stock Catastrophe

My students need white and colored cardstock paper.

  • $176 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are very creative and love doing hands-on projects to make learning fun.

I teach in a school that is extremely diverse in the make up of the student body.

We have kids that speak different languages, students from low income, and students from middle income. We do qualify as a Title 1 school, and most of our kids are on free or reduced lunch.

My Project

We have run out of card stock in our classroom. We use this type of paper several times each week. We use card stock to print out their monthly calendar that they take home everyday. We also use it for making posters for the classroom, making art projects, making classroom books, and making flashcards. Those are just some of the ways that we use card stock each week, but now we have run out.

Now we can't make any of these items because we don't have the paper.

You can help us continue making educational items in our classroom by supporting our project for more card stock paper. We would appreciate your support very much.
