SBEF School Supply Project

Patty Busmire

With these funds we will buy wholesale school supplies from national vendors as well as loss leader items from Walmart.  We have an 8 year track record of success providing thousands of economically disadvantaged SBISD students with essential school supplies, many in Title 1 schools. The supplies range from crayons and pencils to binders and paper; everything a student needs to begin a successful academic year! What would normally cost about $30-35 per student, we are able to provide for around $5 through our wholesalers and donations from individuals and corporations.  This project's success depends largely upon the generosity of time.  Over the 8 prior years we have had 2,000+ volunteers who devote days of their summer to sorting and packing the individual supplies into easily deliverable boxes.  

Imagine you are a teacher in a classroom of economically disadvantaged students...the first day of school is an exciting time in which you strive to begin building the best learning environment possible for the young minds before you. You ask them to take out a sheet of paper and draw a picture of their family or something that inspires them.  Even this simple task is impossible without basic school supplies like paper and crayons or pencils.  In this scenario many of our teachers who are underpaid and sadly sometimes under appreciated dig deep and find supplies or buy them themselves for their students.

Chromebooks for Writing Classes

Ginger O'Donnell

With these funds I will:

  • Enable students to post their own creative writing to https://grandcentercreativewriting.wordpress.com/ and effectively integrate the blog more seamlessly into our creative writing classes. Currently one student blogger and I manage the blog with one computer, which limits the meaningful role the blog could potentially play in the class. If every student could directly post to the blog, use it as a resource during in-class writing exercises, and perhaps workshop each other's work via the comments section, the blog could really enhance students' learning process during class rather than serving merely as a post-writing publication.  
  • Online research is a heavy component of Writing Workshop, in which students write different types of essays to prepare them for college level writing. Having a reliable set of chromebooks would facilitate the in-class research process tremendously, as many of the computers currently available for teachers to borrow have shoddy internet access and are not always available. It would also help in the teaching of MLA format -- instead of presenting students with a paper packet printed from the OWL purdue website, I could help students directly navigate the site, which more closely emulates the process they will use in college.
  • In-class research is also a heavy component in Musical Theatre Lit -- students could access YouTube videos of musicals and choreography as they are reading different scripts in small groups without the need for me to burn CDs for each group and provide multiple CD players (which I have done in the past). 
  • In general, a class set of chromebooks would allow me to significantly reduce the paper usage in my classroom, as students could access files digitally. Please help me kill less trees!
  • I believe my students in particular deserve these resources for two reasons. First, many of my students do not have reliable access to computers at home. Using computers to write will not only improve their writing skills, but improve their computer skills, a skill set which is vital to their success in the job market. While all of my students are creative and critical thinkers, as a whole, their writing skills need improvement and writing can be a challenging and daunting task for many. The simple act of using a computer to write engages and motivates struggling writers. 
  • Also, here are links to a chromebook, a charger, and a docking station:

    Haier Chromebook 11 ($149 each)

    Wall Charger ($12.49 each + $7.49 shipping)

    24 Laptop & Chromebook Charging Cart ($495.94 each)

Help Build The Foundation: Startup Classroom Supplies

Douglas Bartel

Having just returned from Teach for America - 2016 Houston Institute, I am excited to be responsible for my very own classroom here in Kansas City! In the fall, I will begin teaching ELL (ESL) at East High School. Several of my students have never attended school before, many have just arrived to the United States, and most are preliterate in their native languages. In addition to linguistic barriers, one of the biggest hurdles that my students face is a lack of the basic materials that are needed each and every day. It is infinitely more difficult for students to take part in activities and classwork when they do not have these essential supplies. 

All of the funds that are raised will be used in order to purchase the startup supplies needed to welcome my students to a classroom that is both clean and stocked with materials. Here is a complete list of the items that your generous investment will help provide for the students of my very first classroom:

  • Kleenex (18 Pack) - $36
  • 2 Boxes of Pencils (288 Count) - $32
  • Paper Towels (12 Rolls) - $28
  • Anchor Chart Paper (2 Pack) - $27
  • 2 Packs of Dry Erase Markers (32 Count) - $22

Help Build the Foundation: Miss Sharbel's First Grade Classroom

Margaret Sharbel

Hello Everyone!

In the next few weeks I will begin teaching in my very own classroom in Lambert, Mississippi. I am so excited to FINALLY begin this journey that I have dreamed about ever since I can remember! 

As exciting as this time is, one huge hurdle that students in the Mississippi Delta and other high need regions around the US face is a lack of the necessary materials that they need daily. It is extremely difficult for students to take part in activities and classwork when they do not have basic supplies.

My goal is to make sure all of my students feel cared for, loved, safe, and supported in my classroom. I will use any funds that I raise to purchase the necessary supplies to ensure my students have a classroom that is stocked full of materials and supplies. 

Here is a list of some of the materials that your generous investment will help provide for my students:

  • 2 Boxes of Paper (10 Reams) - $50
  • Kleenex (18 Pack) - $36
  • 2 Boxes of Pencils (288 Count) - $32
  • Chart Paper (2 Pack) - $27
  • Sticky notes (18 pack) - $8
  • 2 Packs of Dry Erase Markers (32 Count) - $22
  • Hand Sanitizer (Pack of 2) - $20
  • Crayons (125 bulk supply) -$15
  • Colored Pencils (125 bulk supply) -$25
  • Clorox Disinfecting Wipes (3 Pack) - $12
  • Pack of Highlighters (50 Count) - $10
  • Post-it Notes (24 pack) - $9
  • Folders (75) - $40
  • Binders (24) - $50
  • Rug - $50
