This is a Title I school, and the majority of the students come from low-income families. Many of the students struggle with bringing all the school supplies needed. Over half of the 6th grade students I will be teaching are high risk for not graduating. They are very capable students, but they need help, and they need support.
These students love playing sports and being outside.
Our school hosts a lot of different events that allow them to be competitive and active. They want to learn and grow, but they can't do it alone.
Many of my students come from low-income families and do not get access to basic supplies such as pens, spiral notebooks, binders, pencils, paper, etc.
Having these basic supplies given to them will bring great relief to not only them, but to their families as well.
It is incredibly embarrassing for a student to show up with no school supplies on the first day of school. I would love to prevent that from happening to them.
Having the school supplies that they need brings them one step closer to success in my classroom as readers and writers and gives them more confidence that they CAN do it.
