Mrs. Freitas from Hartford CT is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Simple Bare Necessities

My students need basic materials such as pencils, crayons, erasers, folders are a must. Caddies are needed to organize their supply. New, unbroken stools to sit on at the reading table.

My Students

All different ethnicities make up our school and we are proud to be a strong community school. One hundred percent of our students in our school receive free breakfast and lunch. We have a mix of English Language Learners throughout the school. The students take pride in their school and the teachers and staff who work there. Our school does its best to support our students. We are a well crafted school that wants to ensure that students are receiving a well rounded education, as well as building relationships and everlasting characteristics that will shape who they are and prepare them for their future. These students need some tender love and care, and we are proud to provide that support.

My Project

Our classroom needs the basics. We are running out of supplies. Our current comfy chairs are taped with duct tape to hold them together. These chairs give our classroom that extra special thing.

Who does not love a brand new box of unbroken crayons or a brand new pencil?

(Well, there's always one or two who like that itty bitty pencil.) A three ring binder is a must to keep us organized. A folder for homework and notices that's durable.

We also love using the whiteboards for total participation and need erasers and markers to complete the job.

Let's not forget a few crispy, new, fresh books to read!
