Materials to Help Unleash Future Leaders' Full Potential!

My students need personal binders, highlighters, notebooks, and other organizational materials to maintain order of their notes. I am also requesting headphones.

My Students

"Ms. Friend, I really wish that I could have a chance to use different ways to figure out this problem. I wish that I could better organize my notes and use different tools to help me easily understand and refer back to information we've learned to be able to engage in class discussions."

These are some of the seemingly simple topics that are expressed by the brilliant middle school students at our school in Milwaukee, WI.

Kids who are always eager to learn and unleash their fullest potential. For many of my students, our school is not only an institution for learning, but it is also a second home. The school building is a place where these scholars are constantly pushed to shine their brightest intellectually. Receiving all the tools that they'll need to make their learning space efficient and comfortable, our zealous group of future leaders will effortlessly make conscience gains both in academics and personal growth experiences.

My Project

The students at our school are excited, motivated, and driven to learn. However, they are unable to reach their fullest potential as learners due to a lack of access to basic learning materials. Binders, highlighters, and organizational materials will allow students to more easily focus on learning and retaining prominent information that they are presented with everyday.

Ninety percent of my students are from low-income, urban areas where they are not receiving quality learning materials to last the entire school year.

Tools such as headphones will enhance the success rate of students using computer learning programs in today's modern learning society.
