Mrs. Johnson from Portland OR is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Students Need Homework Kits!

My students need supplies such as crayons, scissors, glue, pencils, and pencil sharpeners at home in order to complete their homework.

My Students

Over 90% percent of our school's population is at or below the poverty line. Due to this fact, many have experienced trauma and are unable to afford supplies to help them be successful in learning. Our school is approximately 50% ESL. My classroom consists of Latino, Black, Asian, Pacific Islander, and White students. Some are refugees.

Our students love to learn, are loving and lovable, and deserve the chance to have the tools needed to help them successfully learn!

They are so proud when they understand a concept, and love to help each other, whether with classwork, tying shoes, or helping when a classmate is hurt or sick. They excel in empathy!

My Project

My students do not have the supplies they need at home to complete their homework, and most cannot afford school supplies for classroom use, let alone supplies to use at home. I look forward to seeing an increase in engagement and ability in my first graders. I am excited to be able to put together Homework Kits for my students.

When students have the supplies they need to do their homework, more students return their homework completed and in a timely fashion.

The Homework Kits will be assembled into the plastic pencil boxes. They will contain pencils, pencil sharpeners, Elmer's glue sticks, crayons, and scissors.
