My Students

My students love to learn but are often a grade or two behind due to the fast pace curriculum and lack of support from home. Many of them come from a low socioeconomic status, and their parents are working graveyard shifts/ multiple jobs and cannot offer the academic support they need to catch up to grade level. My students lack number sense and basic math skills due to the academic gaps. A lot of the times they continue to fall further behind and must persevere through hard work to overcome the adversity in the classroom with constant encouragement from teachers.

My Project

Coming to school without a pencil is like planning to drive without your car keys, it's a set-up for failure. Yet, many of my students come to school without basic school supplies such as pencil and paper. They may start off with minimal supplies but it dwindles mid-year and parents don't replenish it for their child. Although education has shifted to a digital learning environment, there are some assignments in school that require the traditional supplies: pencils, paper, erasers, scissors, and glue. The non-consumable products could be reused for many school years to come. However, the consumable products are constantly needed to be replenished from the money coming from teacher's pocket.

By donating to our project, you will be providing basic school supplies to students so that they don't have to worry about finding a pencil.

Instead they'll know they have the supplies needed to complete their assignment to be successful in school. In fact, your donation will help fund supplies to the few students who often show up to school on the first day empty-handed. Most of the time they must wait for their parent's paycheck to hit payday before getting school supplies. Often times, they end up not getting it whatsoever, because the demands of bills are hovering over their parent's concerns. Your donation will be a contribution to help the future leader of America be successful in school.
