Our School Needs Paper!

My Students

Hello all!

As one of 18 passionate teachers in a low-income community, it is our purpose to create the best possible engaging, loving, and caring environment for our students.

We think of our school as a second home for our students. We provide a safe and encouraging environment where all our students know mistakes make your brain grow!

Our students are curious, compassionate, and hungry to learn! They are excited to explore the world, and the teachers at our school give them every opportunity to do so. The future is bright for our students!

My Project

Hello all,

Unbelievably, our school has run out of paper, and we do not have enough in our budget to continue buying paper for the last three months of school.

We need paper to complete lesson plans, print out worksheets, writing paper, and paper to complete art projects. We are desperate to order paper to complete our school year.

Our math curriculum requires that we copy and print many worksheets for the students to complete, as well as, lesson plans for the teacher. We require paper every single day for students to work on math, language arts, social studies, science, and art.

Please consider donating to help us finish our school year.
