My Students

Inner city Philadelphia....African Americans & Very Low income.

Our school has very limited resources, very few be books and rely on copies and only get 1 ream.

Yes 1 per month . They work so hard however they are unable to get what they need due to budget and I really want my students to have access to as much material as I can given the circumstances. Whatever help you can offer would be very appreciated and would be grateful for anything

My Project

It is a seemingly simple request but something as simple as copy paper is a vital part of getting students materials and information they need. We have very little supplies, very few computers, and the books we do have are old and students can't take them home. So having paper allows me to make copies so students have what they need. I have very little resources personally and as a district any help would be greatly greatly appreciated. I simply need some paper. Paper is actually expensive and we don't think about it but in a school like mine, it is the only way I can get the students information that other schools would simply have in books. Thank you for your support.
