Mrs. Protus from Brentwood NY is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Successful Distance Learning

Help me give my students the supplies they need to continue distance learning. Some of the children are printing pages out daily and ran out of ink and they also have no supplies at home.

My Students

My students are the hardest working kids out there. They come from families that are being hard hit by this virus. The parents work at essential jobs including custodial, food service, and hospital workers. The kids live in homes that have multiple apartments so they are exposed to some very sad circumstances.

Please help my students in this new "distance learning world" continue to learn and grow.

Many of them are struggling to learn from home because their parents don't speak English and are unable to help them. I am looking for ways to help them learn new material so they will be prepared for the return to school whenever that is.

My Project

My students come from a high poverty area. Many parents have been laid off in this terrible time. The students have shared with me that they are running out of supplies and have no money to buy anything.

The materials will be mailed to the families so that they can continue with distance learning for the rest of the school year.

I want to provide everyone with as many resources as I can at this horrible time.

I will also use the material for my online lessons that the kids watch me teach virtually. I have used all of my own resources at this point and I have exhausted all my chart paper and markers.
