Help me give my students bulletin board supplies, dry erase markers, file organizers, anchor chart paper, and sweet treats to maintain focus during high stakes testing.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
We are a Title I school that offers free breakfast and lunch to all children. Our third grade scholars live in a high poverty neighborhood. Our community is located in an inner-city area. About 85% of our students identify as African American, 5% Latino, 2% White, 1% Asian, and 9% multi-racial.
Labels and test scores do an injustice to our scholars and teachers.
My scholars and I refuse to accept failure. If you could see our children, you would understand that they are full of potential and that they are future leaders and innovators. Our students are perseverant, motivated, enthusiastic, and driven to succeed. We will bridge the poverty gap, and they will achieve!
The high stakes state tests are less than two months away!
We have been preparing all year for the PSSA and need some help to ensure we have the materials needed for the upcoming weeks.
We need bulletin board supplies to display motivational messages to inspire us to succeed. We need Expo markers to review and reinforce skills on our slates. We also need brightly colored chart paper to display anchor charts to help internalize important concepts and strategies. We need organizers to keep test prep materials organized and ready to go! Finally, we would like some peppermints and hard candy to help keep scholars focused during the long testing sessions. Thank you for helping our children do their best on the test!
