My Students

Many of our students come from low-income split households and qualify for free breakfast and lunches. They do not have a lot, and they would so appreciate being able to enjoy some of the things the wealthier schools have near us. Our kids are bright, kind and eager and just need an extra chance. We need pencils, markers, just your basic things most students take for granted.

My students are bright and curious and need someone to believe in their future.

By funding our project, it will give them, even more, hope that they can achieve anything that they set their minds to.

My Project

We are very short on supplies here at our school and all of us are on free breakfast and lunch. Supplies are hard to come by. By helping us buy pencils, pens and dry erase markers to use at school, it will really help us.

We may be poor in dollars but we are mighty in wanting to learn.

We use dry erase boards to work independently and in cooperative groups. We use pencils and pens for notes and to complete our work. It gets really expensive for our teacher who has already bought us so much. Thank you for your support.
