Getting Back To Basics

My students need basic supplies to successfully navigate the school year with dry erase markers, storage boxes, school passes, pencils and lapboards.

My Students

My students are an enthusiastic, imaginative group of fourth graders. They are living in an inner-city community. Many are living in shelters. Some are English Language Learners and others have an Individualized Educational Plan. There are many students who have repeated a grade. Most face challenges both inside and outside of school on a daily basis. Despite these challenges, they love learning. They work hard every day in school and at home. They work with classmates to problem solve. They have goals and are working hard to achieve them.

My Project

Basic supplies are needed to supplement our dwindling stock. Pencils, markers, glue and the assorted paper will make a difference in our daily routines and also for special projects.

Students love the smell and feel of brand new supplies.

These supplies will augment learning. Students will be able to do basic skills and art projects. We use most of these supplies everyday. Markers dry out, pencils disappear, paper supplies diminish and they need to be replenished.

It would be great to start January with a new supply of necessities. These would make a huge difference in the class outlook.
