"Underprivileged and no money." That's what my students are. They are the most excited 4th grade students. They want to learn and I want to teach them. They deserve to have some new tools to learn with. Learning should be fun. That way students do not even realize they are learning. My students need to be exposed to a higher level way of thinking. Taking a serious subject like reading and turning it into a fun, relaxing activity is an awesome way to teach and learn. Teaching in NYC has one major downfall. Lack of money. Ideas blossom all around me from inside my students heads. They come up with these great ideas like this one and I try my best to make it reality.

Beautification of our school, ourselves, and our community. We want to start a recycling/ beautification project. We want to clean around our school. We want to plant flowers and brighten our "souls" all at the same time.

The paper and the pencils will allow us to write letters to everyone we know inviting them of special events and things we are going to do. The roll of paper will allow us to make big posters all using recycled goods. The trash bags will allow us to clean up around our school. The pots, soil and seeds will let us plant greenery that will freshen everything up.

Funding these project will not only give students the chance to change their environment but it will allow them to change the lives of many others. This will be the beginning of change. You help us and we help many others and hopefully it will be a big chain reaction after that. Please help us!

Mr. K.
Grades 3-5
Nearly all students from low‑income households
