My Students

Our students are in an area where the majority could receive free and/or reduced lunches. Our PTA is providing the entire PreK - 6 grades their school supplies so I am looking to find a way to support our high school students in a similar way. Especially now with COVID, students have to have their own school supplies and will not be allowed to share them within our classes.

My Project

All of the students can utilize these supplies to write their english essays and do their school projects both in and out of school. We will use the calculators, compasses and graph paper to solve earth science concepts. Students will use the rulers, compass, and protractors for applied geometry classes. Students will utilize these for their math and science assignments with making graphs and solving problems.

This project will support our students in their learning outcomes both in and out of school.

The opportunities for success in school will be endless with these supplies provided.
