Mrs. McCabe from Pocomoke City MD is requesting materials related to Food, Clothing & Hygiene through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Mid-Year May Day

Help me give my students the comforts of home in my classroom with snacks, cleaning supplies, paper products, sensory items, and school supplies that make my students feel special every day.

My Students

Our school is located on the Lower Eastern Shore of Maryland. We are a Title I school with a high percentage (approximately 70%) of students living at or below the poverty level. Our school is a small, rural community school with fewer than 400 students in grades 4-8.

Despite the many challenges my students face, they are eager to learn.

My students are always super excited to come to my class, and I am eager to present them with thoughtful, engaging science content. Science is best learned in context, by doing and experiencing things. DonorsChoose helps make this happen.

We are small but mighty. We have a lot of school spirit, and it really is a great place to spend my time. We are very active in the community and focus on building positive relationships both inside and outside of the school setting.

My Project

Holy cow it's 2020! We are about halfway through the school year and I am sending out an SOS. Our classroom supplies have dwindled and we need a little sparkle in the room to get us through the winter months.

I am requesting sensory items for my special needs students, as well as snacks, pencils, cleaning supplies, tissues, hand sanitizer; basically the things that keep a middle school classroom running smoothly.

My students will be happier and healthier because of the supplies I'm requesting and we know that happier and healthier children are children who are more open to learning new things.
