My Students

Being organized in class helps students take pride in what they do. We are asking for materials that will help my students maintain a clean desk and work environment.

My students love school!

They come from challenging home lives and backgrounds and I try my very best to make school a place that they love. Every day they walk into class with smiles on their faces, ready to learn, but that can be difficult when we are lacking the basic necessities. Our school is very large, with over 1000 students. The majority of my students are English language learners. They come from a variety of backgrounds and many come from hard working families. All students receive district funded breakfast and lunch, because we are in a low-income neighborhood. Even with all of these obstacles, my students are motivated, caring and interested in learning. They love science and computers and reading non-fiction books. They know the importance of their education and are successfully beginning their academic careers.

My Project

In order to become better readers, my students are given their own "book pouch" to keep in their desk, which is filled with books they can read independently. We currently use "Ziploc" bags to hold their books, but they tend to break and don't close well. The new book pouches we would like are made from durable materials and use Velcro to stay closed. They would be awesome for the students to keep their special books safe. My students also need new utility boxes to store their crayons and pencils. The ones they are currently using are almost 5 years old and are in very bad shape. I'd love to give my students new ones to use in September. We are also asking for new writing journals. These will help keep my student's writing neat and organized. These will stay with the students all year and at the end of the school year, they will have a writing portfolio. It would be amazing to have new materials for my students to start using in September.

Although we are only asking for the basics, these items are very important to our learning.

We need book pouches to keep our books clean and safe, utility boxes to keep us organized and writing journals to keep our writing neat and organized. Your donation will help us learn throughout an entire school year. We thank you in advance for your consideration!
