Mrs. Callaway from Laurel DE is requesting Other through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

The Mail Is Here!

My students need a mailbox center to store all of their important assignments, office notes, incentives from the teacher, and student-created projects!

My Students

Some of my students have never received mail in their very own space! My students are full of energy, eager to learn, and proud of their accomplishments! I am trying to provide them with a space where all of their accomplishments, incentives, and important information can be easily stored and shared!

My third graders come from a high-poverty area but that doesn't stop their enthusiasm for their work!

They are highly motivated and love producing products that they are proud to call their own. With this mailbox center, students will be able to ensure that their hard work and accomplishments make it home for their family to enjoy and rave over!

My Project

The item that I am requesting is a 36 compartment mailbox center that will have an individualized shelf for every student in my classroom. This will give students a space to call their very own! I know that my students can't wait to receive words of encouragement from me, their teacher, in their mailbox as well as store their hard work and accomplishments for easy transfer to their home!

My project will make a difference because students will finally have a space to safely store their proud work and accomplishments until the end of the day.

They will not have to worry about misplacing their work or worry about it getting torn or ruin. Students will be able to easily access their materials and transfer them home to show their proud parents/family. I know that my students will be more than excited to get 'mail' of their very own from their teacher in their mailbox!
