Mr. Baker from Crandon WI is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Keeping Our Eyes!

Help me give my students a safe shop environment by providing PPE in the form of safety glasses, including glasses that go over perscription glasses.

  • $593 goal

My Students

My students are extremely diverse in population, for me personally it's extremely interested to learn more about the Native American population which makes up approximately 50% of my student population. Being in a small town, shop class is very relatable for them, this blue-collar town we all live in is very hands-on, the skills they learn here they keep with them and use all their lives.

My Project

These materials are the most important to have in the shop. These materials are more important than the tools themselves, more important than the teachers themselves. You cannot have a shop without safety glasses. Safety glasses are by far the backbone of shop classes. And to sweeten the deal, by securing funds for these safety glasses you are not only doing your part to keep the student's eyes safe, but you are also opening up our budget allowing us to spend money on other things for the students. It's a win-win, the funds go twice as far!
