Charged Up For Learning
My students need rechargeable batteries, memory storage cards and a handheld vacuum.
We have a great digital camera and a collection of prerecorded books funded by Donorschoose.org. What we need is batteries to keep our treasures working.
A snapshot of our middle school shows a diverse high-need school comprised of about 1100 students in grades 6 to 8.
Half of our student population receives free or reduced priced lunch. Approximately half of our students receive support services in addition to their core classes. Many of our students are not native English speakers. The students have all been affected by Hurricane Sandy. The children have lost time in school, some lived without power or heat for weeks, many families still can not return home due to water damage.
We are so appreciative to those who have helped to fund our projects in the past. We love using the digital camera and the prerecorded books. We use these items so often we have exhausted the batteries and are unable to buy new batteries until we get next year's budget. This is why I am requesting rechargeable AA and AAA batteries. I have also asked for a handheld vacuum so the children can clean up after themselves.
Please help us to continue to use the materials we have been fortunate enough to acquire through the generosity of others on Donorschoose.org.
I do not want to lock up the camera and the recorded books until next year. I want the students to use the materials to learn and grow.
