Mrs. Goss from Gainesville GA is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Starting the Year Out Great!

My students need the construction paper for projects, the pencil sharpener to last for the school year, and the kickball and soccer ball for our recess time.

My Students

My school is an amazing place to be every day! My students are primarily English Language Learners from diverse countries such as Mexico, Guatemala, and El Salvador. Many of our students do not have access to basic school supplies, such as crayons, pencils, and paper. We strive every day to give our students the best education that we can possibly give them and to be the "most caring place on earth".

Our students are already trying to overcome so much by learning a new language that they really deserve to have the tools needed to be successful in school.

My Project

My students need the construction paper for projects, the pencil sharpener to last for the school year, and the kickball & soccer ball for our recess time. We will use the construction paper for the various projects and posters that we will work on throughout the school year for all of the subject areas. The students love having a choice in colors to use for their projects and presentations and our school does not provide large pieces of construction paper.

We also have a large kickball tournament that all of the 5th grade students and classes participate in at the end of the school year.

It would be great to have a new ball with bases to use for the upcoming year. The soccer ball will be used to play at recess because soccer is definitely one of their favorite sports.
