My Students

I teach at a very rural and unique school. The school is K-8th grade. We have a total of 81 students. We are unique because we are literally cut off from the rest of our county by a river. In order for a bus to make a round trip to our central office from where we are, it would take an hour and fifteen minutes. However, we had a ferry that once worked which allowed cars to be carried to the other side, but a bus could not fit. Out of 81 students, 1 is Caucasian, 2 are Biracial, and the rest are African American. 99% of our students receive free lunch. With that being said, we are not on the failing school list, our students work very hard in combined classroom settings- (K through Second is taught by one teacher and assisted by 2 instructional aides, 3rd/4th is taught by one teacher, 5th/6th is taught in a combined setting, and 7th/8th is taught in a combined setting. Students excel in academics and behavior. They do not allow obstacles and lack of funding to block their dedication to excelling.

My Project

Due to the recent budget cuts in the state of Alabama, our local school's budget has been cut. Even though our budget has always been little or none due to our rural location and small number of students at our school our funds have been decreased even more. As a result, we have a limited supply of copy paper on hand. On a daily basis, teachers on site use copy paper for their classrooms for classwork, projects, and homework. Therefore, students have to copy work onto their own paper from the white board in order to complete assignments and also hand write parent communications and newsletters. Teachers have also purchased copy paper from their personal funds.

Due to the daily need and usage of copy paper on site, I would like to request that paper is donated to our school, so teachers can continue working efficiently without feeling limited in the amount of copies they are allowed to make and students can put less energy into hand copying assignments and put more energy into the actual completion and mastery of assignments.

Your help will ensure that teachers and students are able to fulfill their instructional duties. Therefore, students would be able to learn necessary skills for their grade.
