Start Up Resources for the New School Year!

My students need to have some start up resources such as pencil sharpeners, pencils, papers, to use during the first few weeks of school.

My Students

My school is a high needs school as we are located in a very low income community. Our community struggles financially and it is hard for them to donate to our school.

Since our socioeconomic status is of primarily low income, our school qualifies for Title I funding, providing free and reduced breakfast and lunch.

I am asking for help to purchase the materials needed for my classroom, which benefits our students first and foremost! My students come first and meeting their needs to learn is important. They deserve to be stress free of distractions and not having to worry about having to purchase materials needed to learn.

My Project

The beginning of the school year can be tough for all to purchase materials for school. I need some cleaning supplies to clean my room and basic materials to start the school year.

My class needs some basic materials to start the new school year like pencil sharpeners, pencils, papers, etc... I usually have to buy several pencil sharpeners during the school year as they don’t last long when used frequently.

Pencils and papers are provided by me so that time in learning are not wasted. I have students highlight important words and numbers often and I usually have highlighters provided if students forget their own or not have any.

Thank you for your help to help me to start my school year!
