Let's Get Started and Keep It Simple

My students need simple tools such as folders, pencils, and erasers to help them get started.

My Students

My students are truly the best. They are the most enthusiastic and hard working students as they are always ready for a challenge. Most of my students come from families with parents whom do not speak English and low socio-economic status. They understand the importance of hard work and thrive to succeed in life and to make their parents proud of them.

All it takes is a simple notebook, pencils, eraser, and the motivation of the students, and they will surely fly successfully on their own.

My students have the drive but not the fund, I hope to find donors like you to make it happen. I plan on providing students materials such as folders, pencils, and erasers to help get them started on the right path. I also like a label maker so I can print out their user names and passwords to their Google Classrooms accounts. Having it in front of them will make it easier for them. Most importantly it will save logging into their accounts and be able to use the time more efficiently on basic skills as typing, coding, using Wixie to illustrate, creating Google slide presentation, etc. We hope you can help us. Thanks!

My Project

The materials that I am requesting are simple learning tools but it would make a huge difference to the lives of my students. All of the materials listed would very much help my students get prepared for the upcoming year.

I like to provide my wonderful and brilliant students a few of the most simple but necessary tools to keep organized and be ready to learn.

All of these tools will help them become prepared and successful. All of my students are I will truly be very grateful for the donations as it would surely go a long way. Thanks!
