New Year? New Grade!! Kindergarten Rocks!

My students need pencils, paper, chart paper, and crayons to start the new year off right!

My Students

D you remember getting new school supplies each year? Many of my students don't have the luxury of going shopping and show up the first day without any new supplies! I want them to have them ready and waiting for them at school!

I teach in Washington, DC in one of the rougher neighborhoods.

The student population is 100% minority and every student receives free breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Many of my students do not have the money to get new school supplies. All of my students deserve new supplies as well as the same things that students in more well-off areas deserve.

My Project

I am requesting a variety of supplies to get our year off right. I am asking for crayons and markers, because Kindergartners go through ALOT of crayons during the year. I am also requesting pencils and a pencil sharpener to keep those pencils nice a sharp! I also am asking for handwriting paper as well as chart paper. These supplies will all help my students be successful this year, and enjoy working on their various project during the year.

I am moving to Kindergarten this upcoming school year and am in desperate need of quite a few things!

I buy a lot of my students supplies during the summer, but am not always able to get them everything they need.
