Student Supplies

Help me give my students the needed supplies to finish out our school year. Due to Hurricane Florence we missed many days of school and students lost some of their supplies.

My Students

Our students at our school are from rural NC and have a variety of learning styles. Several of our students have a military background and may have parents that are deployed. A large portion of our students are English Language Learners. This means that English is their second language. Several only hear English spoken at school. Our school qualifies for free breakfast and lunch. Although our students may not always have the things needed when they enter our doors, we try to provide the items that will make learning fun!

My Project

During Hurricane Florence our district missed over two weeks of school. Our students lost many of their supplies. Parents missed work and do not have the money to replace the supplies though they have been trying. By having this grant fulfilled my students will have the school supplies they need to continue to be successful through the remainder of the school year.

Hurricane Florence brought so much rain, wind, and destruction to our area.

My students have worked hard to try to get back to normal. Each having their own school supplies like sharpeners, markers, and containers will help them regain the normalcy they crave.
