My students need these school supplies to complete everyday task. My school does not have enough funding to supply us with supplies for everyday assignments.
I am a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, and my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
My students are creative, clever, and very spontaneous.
They like to move, they love to read, and they love a lot of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical." From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
This project will help supply my students with pencils, erasers, and a pencil pouch to keep their stuff in it. Most of my students are unable to bring any thing in. They have so much to think about like waking themselves up and getting their siblings ready. Getting a pencil for school is the last thing on their mind. By receiving these items my student can create fun and exciting stories, solve math problems, and create anything their heart desires.
Funding this project will take the worry away from my students already worrisome life.
Then can then focus on the standards they need to achieve in order to be successful grown ups. Please help us get these children what they need to grow and learn.
