My Students

My kids are great kids that come from a very low urban area. Many of these kids struggle to bring the most basic of school supplies to school each day. I am hoping that these projects will help supply my students with the supplies and materials that they will need to be academically successful. Providing new resources to my students is always appreciated by them and goes a long way towards helping them achieve their goals. Anything provided will Ben put right to good use.

My Project

These pencils will be a great resource for my students. They will be a valuable resource that we will use on a daily basis in the classroom. These pencils will be used for all sorts of writing assignments from essays to tests. Providing my students with these pencils will give them the supplies they need to have a successful school year. Providing our kids with the most basic school supplies is a win for them and their academic careers. These pencils will relieve the students of any stress they may have when they get to school and do not have even the most basic school supplies.
