Heavy Duty Holders

My students need these heavy duty plastic folders because the paper ones they currently are using have ripped and are being held together with masking tape.

My Students

My students are from an inner city school and are from low-income families. Our school has a poverty rate of over 96 percent.

Our school serves students in grades pre-kindergarten through fifth grade and provides rigorous academics, fantastic teachers, and a safe learning environment.

The opportunity and achievement gaps are apparent among our student population. Teachers are expected to deliver excellent instruction in science, math, English, history and library skills without the requisite tools to teach our students. We aim high to achieve success!

My Project

My students need these heavy duty plastic pocket folders because the ones they currently use are paper that usually rips/tears within the first couple weeks of school. They are long over due for new folders. I am hoping that these will last much longer!

"Your positive action combined with positive thinking results in success." ~Shiv Khera

These heavy duty plastic folders will be a great relief to the kids and families since they do not have to worry about purchasing these supplies for their kids. These folders should last much longer, maybe even the whole school year! I cannot wait for the kids to see what they can use instead of flimsy paper pocket folders.
