Ms. Meunier from Stockton CA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Helping Students Read and Write in Stockton, CA

My students need pencils, paper, and basic notebooks. I also included things for our classroom such as ink for the printer, hand sanitizer, and tissues. We will be using these to create a welcoming, rigorous classroom!

My Students

My kids come from a low-income and high poverty area in Stockton, CA. Many of my students face difficult challenges both in and out of the classroom and come to school lacking basic supplies. My dream is to help meet this need.

Despite the many challenges they face in their community, my students are some of the most gritty, tenacious, and hard working kids I have ever met.

They never hesitate to do the work it takes to be successful. Many of them will be the first people in their entire family to graduate high school, let alone college. They not only work hard to help themselves be successful, they also work hard to help each other. They consistently encourage each other, support each other, and maintain an inspiring amount of growth mindset.

Our school works really hard to meet the many needs that these students have, but it would be impossible to do this completely. I hope to get basic supplies like notebooks, paper, and pencils to help these students continue to be successful members of their school communities and beyond.

My Project

Many of my students are English Learners, students with Special Needs, and academically deficient Freshmen. These supplies are often ones that are not provided to students by their families and that I have bought for many years.

We need toner, batteries, post-it notes, notebooks, pencils, tissues, wipes and paper that will help them complete tasks in the classroom such as Cornell notes, Philosophical Chairs debates, and group projects.

They will help ease the burden of me purchasing them on my limited budget and help aid the learning for these hard working individuals.

This will not only benefit students for rigorous learning in the classroom but can help them learn the skills necessary for success beyond high school.
