Help me give my students the supplies they need on a daily basis to succeed in the classroom.
Our school is a Title I school. Most of our students come from a low socioeconomic background. However, they are extremely special and unique in more ways than one. They have an extreme love for learning and will stop at nothing to achieve success. My students face daily challenges that include poverty, housing conflicts, unstable households, violence, and crime. The majority of my students have witnessed a murder or heard that a family member or close friend was killed. All of my students receive free or reduced-rate lunch and, sometimes, this is the only hot meal they will eat. This is their reality. Many times they will come to school on an empty stomach. Providing breakfast, lunch, and a snack during the day are some of the things we do to help our students. We know that many of them will go home to either nothing on the table or a plate that may not be enough to satisfy their hunger. Again, this is their reality. We realize that our students are walking miracles.
The materials and supplies that I am requesting for my students already have a "home." In other words, I know exactly where everything will go. We just need your help in getting everything through our door! The erasers, pencils, markers, and other supplies of the sort will be used by the students to read, write and create their masterpieces to demonstrate their learning. The markers and velcro will be used to create interactive anchor charts that reflect the discussions we have during our mini-lessons.
The donations to this project will help to improve my students' understanding of reading, writing and mathematics.
I truly need your support to make this a reality. Thanks!
