My Students

Our school is a designated Title I campus, with over two-thirds of our students being English language learners. Very few of our students have attended prekindergarten or Head Start. We are located in a rural town in a small, county-wide school district. Access to food, clean clothes, and other necessities, as well as to technology and school supplies, is drastically limited for my students.

Our Early Childhood/Pre-Kindergarten students come from a high poverty, diverse community.

Our classes are filled with many students who have not been away from their family until coming to school. The students come eager to learn, but unsure how. Many behavioral challenges are due to not knowing what is expected in a formal school setting.

Due to the socioeconomic levels, we are a Title I school with a high rate of free or reduced-price lunches. We speak many different languages, but all desire to learn no matter the subject.

My Project

On the first day of school kids come loaded down with brand new school supplies like crayons, markers, scissors, and more. Other supplies that are necessities to a functioning classroom do not often end up on school supply lists though. This leads to teachers spending their own money on these supplies. Sure folders may be on their list, but more often than not, cheap paper folders are purchased that last about a month in Pre-K.

We need sturdy, plastic folders with prongs instead.

These plastic folders last us the entire year! The prongs allow newsletters to go home and remain handy in their folders for the entire month rather than falling out and getting lost along the way.

Most of our printed materials see a lot of wear and tear as well. Cardstock paper allows for items to last a little longer, especially when laminated. In Pre-K, EVERYTHING has to be laminated! The items in this project are simple necessities that would allow us to start the new year off right!
