My Project

This project will help my students be able to be prepared for each learning day. Students deserve to feel prepared, motivated, and supported in their learning environment. These generous donations will tremendously help my students.

Pencils, sharpeners, and crayons will help create a space where my students feel comfortable and ready to show what they learned in every subject.

Furthermore, these materials will keep my students more actively engaged and will increase learning time in the classroom. Thank you in advance for being a part of this amazing journey with us!

Ms. W.
Grades 3-5
