Mathematics Is The Door And Key To The Sciences- R. Bacon

My students need 48 3-subject notebooks with pockets for math class.

My Students

I teach 150 middle school students in a Title 1. low income, inner city environment. Most of our students live with multiple siblings in a cramped apartment community. The children are very excited to attend school each day but they lack the necessary school supplies to be successful in my class.

Our school serves a 98% low income population.

Many of our students' families do not have a car and either cannot get to the store for supplies or cannot afford the supplies. I supply pencils to my students but notebooks are an item I cannot afford to supply. All of our students have the desire to be successful, independent thinkers but are sometimes limited beyond their responsibility. These students have the wherewithal to succeed but sometimes just need a helping hand for support.

My Project

I am requesting 48 spiral notebooks for a third of my students. Each one of them deserves to feel loved and appreciated. Just by supplying them with a notebook will show how special they are and will cause them to work harder because they know that their teacher believes in them.

Thank you for your consideration in sponsoring my project.

You have no idea how much your generous contribution will change the life of one sixth grade child. A notebook is a trivial item to some but its a large dream come true for others.
