Hooray! This project is fully funded

I'm a 7th grade math/science teacher at Fischer Middle School of Alum Rock School District in San Jose, California. Fischer is a Title I school where most if not all of our students receive free lunch. My 7th graders in my life science class (Biology) can't wait to learn about animals and their anatomy. Most of all, they can't wait to dissect them. (I know it sounds macabre, but students need to practice before they can become doctors.) It is my belief that students learn better with hand-on experiences. Please help our students learn by providing us with 10 dissecting kits, 10 dissecting pans, and some dissecting pins. Students will be working in groups of four. These kits will be used this year and in the years to come. Thank you for your consideration and support of our students! You never know; they may become the doctors of the years to come. Thank you for taking your time to read this proposal. Many, many thanks to those who help our students become doctors.
