Ms. Ciesla from Morgan Hill CA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Classroom Basics

My students need items for their individual learning and projects like glue sticks, paper, pencils, and markers. The classroom needs items like cleaning wipes, hand sanitizers, copy paper, and tape.

My Students

My students are amazing! I have never seen a class with so much sparkle and drive as them despite the hardships that a majority of them face. My school is a Title 1 school in Northern California where around 85% of students receive free breakfast and lunch daily. In addition to that the school works to help them with clothing from local organizations, food from a food pantry, and fundraising for 5th grade science camp. My students know their hard work will pay off!

My Project

I am starting to plan for the 2018-2019 school year, and know most of my students struggle with basic classroom supplies. Even when a supply list is given most families are not able to bring in all of the items needed for their student’s learning.

I am hoping by getting some of the basics now, I can save the rest of my classroom budget for doing more steam, art, and interactive and engaging lessons with my students.

This past year it was a great effort to balance the budget for things that we need in the classroom and things that we want to help students succeed.

Items will go to the following places:

--Individual Student Needs: Markers, pencils, lined paper, glue sticks, construction paper, and erasers

--Whole Class Needs: hand sanitizers, disinfecting wipes, and white board markers
