Need Storage Cabinet To Safely Store Classroom Items

My students need a storage cabinet to keep all work folders and projects organized in a safe place, so nothing gets lost or misplaced and will help with class organization

My Students

Do you remember what it was like to turn an assignment and then have the teacher say it was missing? Do you remember trying to find class supplies but none were available? It is tough not to have a safe and secure storage cabinet in the classroom to keep all student work and class supplies safe.

My students are eager to learn a new language and excited to do projects, and to read, write, and speak a new language to help them become bilingual and be ready for a competitive job market and global society that expects nothing but the best from them.

My students come from a middle to lower income and school supplies are not easily accessible. This, in turn, is why I feel I have to make sure that all work and supplies have to be safely stored in a storage cabinet, so that all students can reap the benefits of having their work safely stored, which helps them with organization and life skills. Class supplies like colored pencils, markers, poster paper, staplers and all other supplies get lost or misplaced if they are not safely stored, which is why my students need a storage cabinet to keep all supplies safely stored. In the end, my students will reap the benefits of having all work and supplies stored because we will have more items and classwork available for them without a problem.

My Project

Yes, my class is eager to learn and excited to do projects, and to read, write, and speak a new language. Because my students come from a middle to lower income background and school supplies are not easily accessible to them, it is hard to buy or replace items. This is why I have to make sure that all work and supplies have to be safely stored in a secure storage cabinet, so that all students can reap the benefits of having their work safely stored, which in turn helps students with being organized. As previously mentioned, class supplies like colored pencils, markers, poster paper, staplers and all other supplies get lost or misplaced if they are not safely stored, which is why my classroom is in need of a storage cabinet to keep all supplies safely stored. Over the years, I have struggled with organization, so having a storage cabinet will help tremendously. This will help keep student work and supplies stored and we will have more items and classwork available at all times.

Being able to acquire a storage cabinet is essential to the organization of my classroom will enable my students to be organized by having all work folders, student projects, and classroom supplies to be stored in a safe place.

I feel that, with your generous help, I will be able to help students to be organized and also to be able to have classroom supplies ready at all times without worrying that classroom supplies are being lost or misplaced. Thank you for your kind generosity and support.
