My students need school supplies such as pencils, papers, and folders in our classroom to start the 2018-2019 school year successfully. Thank you ahead of time for your support in helping ease the financial burden for many families.
I have 25 amazing students in a Title I School. As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Many of them are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives. However, I can certainly control their experience during the school day.
The majority of my students have difficulty purchasing the required school supplies at the beginning of the year and I want to make this one less worry for them.
Many of my students come from low-income families, who are struggling financially and start the year off with limited to no school supplies. Pencils, papers, and folders would help those families who cannot afford to purchase their children these supplies.
The school supplies will be readily available to bless specific students who need them, at the beginning of the school and throughout the year.
This will help take the pressure off of families and keep my students from feeling upset or embarrassed.
Thank you for your support in making our year successful and our a classroom a positive environment.
