Mrs. Lyro from Muskegon MI is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Essential Classroom Supplies, Greatly Needed!

Help me give my students supplies! We are currently in need of reusable water bottles and earbuds. These supplies are used to support our students while they're on campus and in pursuit of their high school diploma.

My Students

Many of my students are former dropouts that have taken the brave step to finish their high school diploma. Most often, dropping out wasn't a choice they wanted to make, but rather the result of challenging family dynamics and circumstances far beyond their control.

Many of my students have experienced unimaginable hardships, yet they persist.

Most of my students are from low-income households, some are even homeless. In addition to financial hardship, several of my students are also single parents of infants or pre-school age children. They struggle to pay bills, care for their children and finish their high school diploma. Yet, they persist.

All of the students in my classroom have something in common: They have been let down by many people throughout their lifetime. Despite that commonalty, they have found the courage to put one foot in front of the other, bravely trusting me to support them!

My Project

Due in part to limited resources, my school is no longer able to provide single-use water bottles to our students. We have just one water refilling station/fountain in our school and the regular tap water is not suitable for drinking. This issue is decreasing the productivity of my students!

We hope to give each student a reusable water bottle to increase productivity, cut down on plastic waste, and reduce the cost of providing single-serving water bottles.

In addition, our school has run out of earbuds. Our students use these earbuds to listen to direct instruction and educational videos required by their self-paced high school diploma program. It's very important that they have these earbuds to reduce distraction in the classroom and increase productivity!
