My Students

My students are from an inner city school and are from low-income families. Our school has a poverty rate of over 96 percent.

Our school serves students in grades pre-kindergarten through fifth grade and provides rigorous academics, fantastic teachers, and a safe learning environment.

The opportunity and achievement gaps are apparent among our student population. Teachers are expected to deliver excellent instruction in science, math, English, history, and library skills without the tools needed to teach students. We aim high to achieve success.

My Project

My students need these supplies to stay on track on fourth grade. The students need the pencil pouches, pens and pencils to be able to do their class work in fourth grade. They won’t need to worry about buying these supplies themselves!

"It's one of my favorite season of the year: Back to School.

As a kid, I loved fresh school supplies, new outfits, the change of seasons, and the chance to crack open a new textbook." Dana Perino

These pencil pouches will help them keep their pencils and pens organized so they do not get lost during transitions to the other classes that they travel to. The pencil pouches will be a great help for students that do not have the money to be able to buy for themselves. I'm sure families will be thrilled that they will be purchased for their child.

We always need pens and pencils to write with. For some reason they disappear quickly in school. The students will be able to have a pencil pouch filled with pencils and a pen!
