Mr. Sutton from Detroit MI is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Math Geniuses Need Project Supplies!

My students need construction paper, a stapler, a pencil sharpener and dry erase pockets and markers for math projects.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students walk into my classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. I ask them, "Who is the best fourth grade class in the whole world?" and they reply, "We are!" I want them to know I believe in them and they can do and achieve anything. Basic supplies are very difficult for my student to buy to keep the learning going.

I teach at a Title I school in Detroit Public Schools where 100% of my students receive free breakfast, lunch, and a snack for dinner.

Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful.

My Project

Most classroom teachers take it for granted that they have basic supplies but as a Detroit Public School teacher I do not. Please help donate construction paper, a stapler, dry erase pockets and markers. These supplies will allow students to complete math projects: plotting points on a graph, working on math problems using the dry erase pockets as an overlay.

Students will be able to make a visual representation of everyday math problems.

Your help is needed because the cost of these supplies tends to add up quick when I am buying basic supplies throughout the year out of my own pocket. I need these supplies to help my students continue learning and allowing them to be able to complete classroom math projects. Please help us.

Your generous donation to our project will improve our 4th and 5th grade split classroom by building stronger thinkers and students who do not have to worry about being without.
