My Students

Help my students achieve success! My students have the will and want to learn. Unfortunately, they do not all have the means to do so as the majority of them come from low income homes and some are even the caretakers and money makers for their families. They are strong, resilient and want to learn. If you can, please help me provide what my students need to reach their goals effectively.

My Project

Help my students achieve success! My students have the will and want to learn. Unfortunately, they do not all have the means to do so. The items I am requesting will help the students reach their goals, and will help prevent them from being unprepared. Many students come to school without simple items such as a pencil. They will go the whole day without one, being embarrassed at times to ask for one, and now they will have supplies at their fingertips. I am also asking for other supplies to help them complete assignments: colored pencils, markers, erasers, paper, rulers, markers, and a class set of pencil bags to keep supplies in. If you can, please help me provide what my students need to reach their goals effectively.
