As many of you know, Michigan has been experiencing a depressed economy, which has had a direct effect on the school systems in our state. Many services have been cut and supplies are almost a thing of the past, which makes it necessary to seek funding from other sources. This request is for the entire school, which is represented by the following cultures: 58% African-American, 8% Hispanic, 16% White, 13% biracial, and 5% Asian. All of the students are considered high risk and are living well below the poverty level.
Well, it is the third week of December and we are out of supplies! In my room, as well as many others in our elementary school, every inch of a piece of paper is utilized. When one side of the paper is used the other side is written, printed or photo-copied on.
But low and behold, we are out of paper!
What I'm requesting is copy paper for the entire school's use. Currently I save every piece of paper that the students use and as long as it isn't too wrinkled I use the back and send it through the copy machine again. Currently our paper shelves are empty. At every turn we are faced with buying our own ink for printers! Figuring out how to make copies. Where can we get that set of books we would like our students to read. We might be able to do without a lot of things but paper and pencils are really a necessity in a classroom. Even if we try to use dry erase markers and boards instead of paper, eventually all the markers are being used up. I would truly appreciate your consideration for this "paper project." Your generosity will help provide this daily classroom necessity. Thank you!
