Mrs. Leigh from Saint Louis MO is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

School Supplies for Life Long Learners!!

My students need basic school supplies to set them up for success during the school year. Your donation of basic supplies such as pencils, pens, erasers, highlighters, expo markers, binders, and glue will provide my students with the essentials needed to do their best in class.

My Students

My students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with 100% of my students receiving free breakfast and lunch. Many of my students also receive backpack food on the weekend.

Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best.

They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day. Every day, my students walk into the classroom full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them each day.

My Project

Despite the incredible challenges that my students face in their day to day lives, they come eager and excited to learn.

Students in my class are motivated and determined to reach their highest potential.

No child should lack basic supplies as they go back to school. Even though my students lack school supplies due to various reasons beyond their control, none of my students use challenging circumstances as an excuse to keep them from learning.

Your donation of basic supplies such as pencils, pens, erasers, highlighters, expo markers, binders, and glue will provide my students with the essentials needed to do their best in class. The supplies will be used in all academic areas. To most, basic supplies are readily available but my students lack the essential supplies needed to function on a day to day basis.

My students face challenges that many do not. Having basic supplies keeps my students focused on learning and creates confidence. Donating the supplies will keep my students from worrying about unimportant things and motivated them to do their best in school.
