My project aim to fund a years' worth of weekly issues to Scholastic's "Let's Find Out" social studies and science issue. My school is categorized as highest poverty, and my students rarely have the access to finances and opportunities to explore the world outside of their hometowns. Help them see what am intricate and awesome place our planet is by bringing these subjects to life in our classroom!

Our project is called "Scholastic Scholars"

Donors Choose has been a great resource in getting hard to attain materials for my classroom. Despite how individuals feel about Common Core instruction, it is here, and as a teacher I must prepare my students for what lies ahead. I currently have four projects listed. Two already qualify for 50% off while funding is available. Hopefully all four will be funded before school resumes in August by individual donors or by generous philanthropists like the ones who fully funded all projects in cities such as :Mississippi, Atlanta, Brooklyn, and DC .


Thanks for the support.

Thank you for a place to promote our projects. I have a project posted for PE and gym equipment. I teach at a GNETS school that serves students with Severe Emotional Behavior disorders and students with autism. We don't get any "Title" money and our budget is always so tight. Most of the P.E. equipment we have consists of a few basketballs really. Most of the equipment that the students use has been brought in by staff members. I have been looking for places to promote this project. Here is the link.

Thanks again - Cyn

Thank you for the opportunity to share! I had some success with Donors Choose last year during my first year teaching. Currently, I have a project going for new puzzles. My Early Childhood Special Education classroom has puzzles but most are very old, dirty, and missing many pieces. My kiddos get so sad when they get to the end of the puzzle but they can't finish it because of a piece being gone. We were supposed to be able to order some new ones, but two separate break-ins at our school have resulted in all extra money going to replace gone technology. Any little bit helps and my project is up for the INSPIRE code until July 16th! http://www.donorschoose.org/project/is-a-puzzle-still-a-puzzle-without-a...

Thank you for the opportunity to share our projects!

Here is my Donors Choose page (two projects up): http://www.donorschoose.org/melissa.nichols

The income divide in San Francisco is one of the largest in the country, and unfortunately, most of my students did not get the affluent end of the "stick" in life. Statistics will tell you that students like mine won't go to college, won't become successful, won't lead meaningful and productive lives. We don't stand for this kind of thinking--and in fact--we are proving these statistics wrong every single day in our classrooms. Our students have always risen to the challenge and surprise me every day with their ability to be thoughtful and constructive. We are on the road to and through college, one step at a time. Yes, we can!
