Mr. Skura from Zionsville IN is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

New Again!

Help me give my students a fresh start on items that were purchased over my 17 years of teaching. To be specific, new chargers for our iPads, new micro USB cords for bamboos, and clipboards.

My Students

I have an excited group of young, eager, and energetic students this school year. The students were pumped and ready to start their middle school adventure since day one.

I teach sixty-nine fifth grade math and science students every day.

I love how the students come to school ready to learn. I want my classroom environment to match their energy level. I also want my classroom to be a place where students have ownership of what is displayed.

Thank you for your support!

My Project

Over the past 17 years, I have taught I have been blessed with receiving many grants from our PTO. Over time the items the items get beaten up, damaged, or have grown legs and disappeared. What I'm asking is for the items to have a fresh start. What I am requesting are new cords and wall plugs for iPads, new micro USB cords for our bamboos, new exercise balls to replace the ones that have been popped, and new clipboards.

All of these items I am asking for will go a long way in providing my students with a better learning environment.
