Helping Everyone To Succeed

My students need a lot of supplies to help organize day to day tasks

My Students

Our leaders (students) live in a very rural community of 2,500 on the Tennessee/Kentucky border. No where is close. Our band program is growing very fast, but the income of the average family is low. Our program is lacking what many have but we make it work as best as we can. For many, a skill like this is the only way to afford higher education, so they endure and keep pushing using what they have access to. They come in as 6th graders with high hopes and expectations and my goal is to feed that drive, not to ever have to place it on hold.

My Project

This allows every student to have the supplies and organization to be successful everyday in class. Many students find finding a pencil a stressful situation when they are in a home that does not always have a simple dollar to get a pencil nor other supplies. These will supply all, the room with supplies that the student can secretly get and use for the day. Pencils, markers and erasers are the basic needs for my classes the pencil holder to ensure success in having supplies as needed. The card stock allows us to have strong programs for our concerts and to create posters for classroom.
