Desperately Seeking Basic Supplies

My Students

I truly believe that we have some of the most kind, funny, and caring students on the planet. The students at our school are amazing! They come to school every day with great attitudes and a drive to learn, regardless of their home situations.

Unfortunately, my students have many obstacles in their young lives like their socioeconomic status (all our students qualify for free lunch), their living area, the fact that over 90% of our students are ESL, and the list goes on and on.

Our students overcome these challenges on a daily basis. They come to school, a safe, warm place, ready, excited, and willing to learn. They look up to us and expect great things just as we expect great things of them. I am hoping to be afforded the opportunity to meet my students' most basic needs so they can fully focus on their education.

My students have had very few experiences in their lives and have very few resources available to them outside of school, and that is why I am hoping that you will provide them this opportunity to utilize these resources that they may never otherwise be able to use.

My Project

We have been so incredibly fortunate this past year to receive so many wonderful donations from donors around the country! We appreciate all that has been donated to our school and students who are very in need of all that has been donated. As the school year comes to an end, I have realized that there are a few more items that we could really benefit from!

I am asking for some random, yet very important items that will help to get our classroom back up and running until the end of the school year.

The folders will be given to students to help keep them organized. We also use the file folders for our rotating and interactive lab stations. The baggies are used for so many things around our classroom from science experiments to lost teeth, I just can't seem to keep enough of them around!

Please consider donating to this project. We thank you so much!!!
