Mrs. Lewis from Saint Marys PA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Health And Happiness

My students need tissues and hand sanitizer to keep us germ free, and some decorations and a laminating machine to help make our classroom bright and happy!

My Students

My students come from a small town in rural Pennsylvania. Our school houses close to six hundred students from grades K-5. My students are in grades three, four and five. I teach them in a small group, learning support classroom using intensive direct instructional programs.

My students are truly amazing!

They may struggle with academics, but they work so hard everyday to be the best they can be! I want to help my students achieve and develop a lifelong love of learning with your help!

My Project

I want my students to have the best learning environment possible! I am always looking for fun, new ways to decorate the classroom to make our learning environment fun with colorful accents and bulletin boards. The borders, name tags and decorations will help bring some color into our classroom.

Since I do teach in a Learning Support classroom, we often do not get donations of tissues or hand sanitizer that a homeroom may receive at the start of the year.

I want to provide my students with both of these, so we can stay healthy and happy all year long!
