Organization at Its Best!

My students need bins for their homework-paper trays and a storage organizer for paper.

My Students

I have a classroom of 16 4th grade students, who are all very close friends which means they are very chatty. They are a sweet group who work hard. By the end of the school year I want my students to have all grown mentally and physically. Home lives are not the best which affects them daily.

My school is a title one school with a high poverty rate.

Our free and reduced lunch is around 89%. Most children come from blended homes & families. A lot of our students are raised by grandparents or guardians. Their home lives affect their ability to excel and we work with their mental emotional situations on a daily basis.

My Project

My students do well if they have minimal change in daily routines and if they have an organized area to work in. My students need a specific area to turn in their homework each day (paper bins) and a place to go and get notebook paper or construction paper from (organizing cart). It would be great to also have a organizer for daily work as well. These items would cut down on educational time spent explaining where to turn items in each day.

Our school does not get much money to spend on items not "needed".

The donations would greatly impact our daily routines and allow more educational time to be spent on teaching the material needed.
