Needed Classroom Supplies to Begin the Year!

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/fifth 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

My students come into our classroom with little or no school supplies to start the year off. I am asking for the following: pencils, staples, white , an organization cart , cleaning and hygiene supplies , homework and subject folders, and labels.

Providing students with the necessary basic school supplies has a great impact on the students learning experience.

The pencils will help my students complete daily assignments by making sure that they are prepared and ready to write at any given time. An organization cart to keep items organized. Cleaning and hygiene supplies will keep the kids healthy in the classroom throughout the year. Folders will help keep the students assignments and homework organized. Labels to organize each students folder.White copy paper will allow me to make copies for the students without having to purchase the paper with my personal money.

These supplies will be used to help my students have the best learning environment this year. With your help my students will have enough supplies to last us through the year.
