Ms. Welch from Hayward CA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Fresh Start School Year!

My students need school supplies to start the new school year off right! With book boxes for easy book access, earbuds for tech, and the best school supplies for learning we can tackle anything!

My Students

Our K-6 community school is situated in a predominately new-comer community in Hayward. Our college-bound kids walk to school, watch out for each other, and strive hard to make their parents proud! This 3rd-grade class is at least a year behind in reading and writing levels and have their minds set on making amazing growth this year. These little scholars work hard every day to meet their learning goals, make their parents proud, and be prepared for a bright future. Our kids are ready to take on the world but lack the resources needed to catch up to their peers in other districts!

My Project

There is little in this world more exciting than the first days of school. The smell of fresh pencils, workbooks with no marks, friends yet to be made, and the promise of fascinating new topics and skills.

Every child deserves to start their year with brand new supplies from the best sources!

New earbuds, pencils, crayons, supply pouches, notebooks, and class library supplies set kids up for success. They know that we value their work when we provide them with the supplies they need to do that work! This year the right supplies will help us become writers, readers, and mathematicians!
