Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Can't ever find something or remember where you put it? Or did you have kids who never seemed to make it home with information from school, so you never knew what was going on? Help us stay organized. "OK Books" are Organized Kids Binders they help us do just that!

The students I have are from a very high poverty school and 95% of them receive free or reduced-price lunch.

They come to school without the supplies needed and can't organize things or get things home. Parents don't have the income to buy the necessary items kids need to learn or to be successful students.

My Project

These binders, with dividers, are the school-to-home communication. It includes the homework to be completed, completed work, notes/information from school, parent communication, reading log, spelling words and other information. This binder keeps everything together in one place and makes it easier to explain to parents where they will find things. Parents then know where to look daily for information.

Please help my students and their parents stay organized and help me to keep my sanity.

These binders make the task much easier. Students love the idea of "OK Books." They take pride and ownership in them. They can personalize them with the clear view. Thank you for your help and support.
