Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our school is a Title 1 targeted school and this tells a lot about the financial status of our students. Therefore, any help from any organization will be of great assistance to them.

My students comprise of both African American and Hispanic speaking populations.

They are Grade 8 science students in an urban middle school in the State of Maryland. They are also special needs students in a self-contained intensive class. Our school population is a mixture of different races, but African American students are about half of the population. About 45% of the school population eat free and reduced lunch.

My Project

I am asking for donations of fabric markers and white t-shirts. We have been studying the Periodic Table of Elements and it is now time for my students to show their understanding of the concept. A good way of assessing them will be through spatial art as most of them are not good at writing many sentences. Therefore, the requested items of markers and t-shirts will be used by each student to produce an Element shirt they can wear and be proud of. This will be a great achievement on their part and an excellent way of assessing their knowledge of the elements and how they are arranged on the Periodic Table.

These children come to school with little or no supplies and when you call the parents, they will tell you that their children will bring the supplies when they get paid, which most of the times, never happens.

Therefore, we need help to complete this project which is important to my students
