Agility Ladders and More for Physical Fitness! [#238-0003]

School Name: Mililani Middle School
Teacher: Michelle Wilson
Grade: 6
My school doesn't have a covered gymnasium and it is difficult to make sure that the students are working towards their physical fitness goals when the weather is bad. Many times 24 or more students are crowded into one classroom when it rains for health and PE classes. However, agility ladders and competing in a shuttle run can be accomplished in a relatively small indoor area. Over 150 6th grade students will benefit each year from your donation. Please help us keep Hawaii's keiki fit!

My Students need 4 Flat Agility Ladders, 4 Shuttle run bars

iHelp – we would like an iPad for our special ed class! [#133-0002]

School Name: Linapuni Elementary
Teacher: Kathryn Inouye
Grade:
Hi! As a special education teacher working with kindergarten and first grade children in an inclusion setting, I would love to have an iPad. Inclusion means special education students are in a general education class throughout the day. As the inclusion teacher, I work with all students in the class. Having an iPad that can take photos and videos would be so great. While it's primary purpose would be as a teaching tool, I plan to use the iPad as a means to create, collect and store data for electronic portfolios for my students. It's such a great motivator and way easier to carry around than a laptop!

My Students need iPad mini 32g gray/black with Apple care, folio hard case.

Incorporating Art in the Classroom at Hale’iwa Elementary! [#206-0001]

School Name: Hale'iwa Elementary
Teacher: Kira Kepoo-Hirayama
Grade: Kindergarten
Kindergarteners love to do art. They especially love to paint; therefore, I like to incorporate art into my lessons, such as painting apple prints when learning the letter Aa, making crafts during the holidays, and doing sponge painting when learning shapes. Painting also helps to learn about the color wheel (primary and secondary colors).

My Students need 25-crayola washable watercolors (8 color & 1 brush) 1-black crayola washable paint 16oz squeeze bottle 1-brown crayola washable paint 16oz squeeze bottle 1-violet (purple) washable paint 16oz squeeze bottle 1-orange washable paint 16oz squeeze bottle 1-peach washable paint 16oz squeeze bottle 1-white washable paint 16oz squeeze bottle 1-magenta washable paint 16oz squeeze bottle 1-yellow washable paint 16oz squeeze bottle 1-red washable paint 16oz squeeze bottle

Classroom Aquarium for Learning! [#256-0012]

School Name: Waialua Elementary
Teacher: Lisa Lariscy
Grade: 4
This classroom-safe aquarium comes with everything we need—just add water and fish! The spherical design gives kids a crystal-clear view from every angle…and the curved sides even magnify fish for up-close observation.  It comes complete with a filter, water pump, low-voltage light, water conditioner and ceramic gravel…even fish food! This would be a great addition to our first grade classroom so that students can observe fish close-up while we study our "living things and their habitat" curriculum.

Mrs. Goeas’ Class needs School Supplies! [#280-0013]

School Name: Holomua Elementary
Teacher: Rolene Goeas

These school supplies are all on the student's school supply list, however some parents can not afford to purchase everything for their children.  Teachers like myself buy these items out of our own pockets to ensure each student has what they need in order to be successful in school.  This means the right tools for learning, and not feeling embarrassed if they are missing these supplies.

My Students need Number 2 Pencils, Expo Markers, Sharpies, Erasers (HI-Polymer), Blue/Black/Red pens, 2 in. Binders, index dividers (8 subject), Crayola crayons, color pencils, college rule paper, 3-prong folders, portfolios, calculators, clorox wipes, sheet protectors, highlighters, white out tape, paper towels, 12" ruler, post-it notes, and school boxes.

Basketball for Keiki at Nanaikapono Elementary! [#261-0004]

School Name: Nanaikapono Elementary
Teacher: Marilyn Castro
Grade: Kindergarten
We have ared, portable, basketball frame (that does not have a net) that we take out at recess time for the children to throw basketballs into.  Because there is no net, the preschoolers throw the ball from under the hoop.  It would greatly help to show the 3 and 4 year olds that we throw basketballs from the "outside into the net" and get the ball after it falls through the net. This will help children: - develop gross motor skills -take turns shooting a basket -develop a sense of pride when accomplishing a task(ball in basketball net)

My Students need basketball net for a red portable children's basketball frame.

Cooler Classroom for Laie Elementary! [#319-0001]

School Name: Laie Elementary
Teacher: Mike Akinaka
Grade: 2
Our classroom is hot and has very little breeze as we have a stairwell and an elevator by our doors and a wall with houses on the other side by our windows. My students are always complaining that they're hot which can be quite distracting. We were given 2 box fans by our school but it's very noisy and it doesn't oscillate which means I have to talk loud and only a few students feel the fan= more complaining. I brought 2 from home but have taken 1 back as it's been hot at our house lately. We would like 3 quiet oscillating fans to help us keep cool.

Advanced Literacy Improves College-Bound Students Grades! [#218-0003]

School Name: Leilehua High School
Teacher: Nicole Goodrich
Grade: 9-12
I teach an AVID class at Leilehua High School in Wahiawa. The class is for first generation college bound students. These are students whose families did not go to college or they are underrepresented minorities in four-year universities and colleges. I have found that many students do not have their own paperback books let alone hard copies. As advanced literacy skills are crucial to college success, I would like the class to read and discuss various novels during the year. Sara Farizan's book If You Could Be Mine is about a love entanglement of young adults set in Iran. Since many teenagers have lots of drama in their relationships, I thought the book would keep their interest/attention. I also want my students to be aware of places outside of the U.S. We will sometimes read it together in class for reading comprehension and vocabulary acquisition. Students will also have reading assignments for homework. Students will write a paper reflecting on a short story they related to, and they will also write an opinion piece on one of the stories. Lastly, students will give oral presentations in class.

My Students need I am requesting 20 paperback (or hard copies if paperback is not available) of Sara Farizan's book "If You Could Be Mine." Used books are fine with me!

Classroom Supplies [#252-0003]

School Name: Campbell High
Teacher: Sybil Ranada
Grade: 10
Our inclusion class services both the general education population and a large number of special needs students. We are in need of consumable (& a few not-so-consumable) classroom supplies/necessities. We (the teachers - there are two of us), try to provide most supplies (out-of-pocket) because even the smallest things can help student learning. Unlike the elementary schools, we must either supply the consumable items ourselves, or cross our fingers that parents will donate. A gift card to Walmart/Target will purchase our wish list & any excess money will be used to buy motivating treats that our teens love! Thank you!

My Students need Tissue (during cold season our students go through a box a week!), Hand Sanitizer (also, highly consumable!), Paper towels, Tape (Scotch tape-type), Glue, Post-its, Bar stool (approx. $10 - to be used w/our high-top student desk for our "active" students)
Message from Students/Teacher: Since school supplies are not necessarily required at the high school level, many teachers often have to provide the basics for their students. We normally provide tissue, band-aids, pen(cil)s, paper, glue, scissors, markers, to name a few. These things add up and can be very costly throughout the year because they are so consumable, and, take away money that we could use to purchase fun and rewarding items for our students. Thank you for providing these items to our classroom. The tissue and hand-sanitizer are almost gone and it's only been one semester! The students are very appreciative!

Sometimes I'm the one & only stable component in my student's lives. I would like an iPad so that I can install apps & use them as tools to help my below-level students with the basic skills they're lacking, apps to challenge my on-level students to push them higher or to reinforce what they're learning, apps for my above-level students to enhance their learning & start on the next grade level concepts. And last but not least, for me as a teacher. There are so many helpful apps for me to better my craft. There's a common core app & a file manager so that I can sync my files from my work laptop to home to iPad. There are so many great science apps too! If I do get an iPad than I would also buy the connection so that I can connect my iPad to my projector & SmartBoard. I could also use it as an incentive for students who hit their goals. There are endless possibilities as to how I can use one iPad in my classroom.

It is a health and safety requirement for students at a public school to wear footwear.  If a child shows up  to school without footwear, we try to find some footwear for the child to wear so that they can enter the cafeteria for breakfast and lunch.  If the child's slipper breaks during the school day, we try to mend it by using duct tape, staples, paper-clips, and also the plastic bread clip. Over 93% of Pahoa Elementary School students come from a household receiving public assistance and therefore, the rubber slipper is their only foot covering.  Last week, we gave out our last donated pair of size 8 slippers.  Two students had to wear size 4.5 slippers to the cafeteria so that they could enter and eat breakfast.  The shoes were so small that their heals hung off the back of the slipper. Please help to re-fill our needed supply of rubber slippers.  Mahalo,  Kainoa Arensdorf, School Counselor

Reading and Writing in Kindergarten [#311-0001]

School Name: Kainalu Elementary
Teacher: Sherri Brown
Grade: 1
Reading and writing in kindergarten is the mainstay of what we do, but without proper tools and resources it is almost impossible.  Our literacy resources are books we print from a website and requires approximately a ream of paper each week to keep running at an optimal pace (we are alloted two cases each year, and I am already working on my 5th case).  On top of that, many of our literacy games, and activities to support our teaching has to be purchased, printed, then laminated to keep them durable for future use.  As a teacher just getting back into the classroom after a mommy break, I go through a color and black ink cartridge a week (when I can afford them) and 20 laminating pouches every two weeks as well as multiple reams of paper.  Since we have very little supporting curriculum such as teacher's manuals or appropriate workbooks/guided reading books  we have to make them to keep our kids interested and busy with meaningful work.  When this is in place we can attend small group instruction-where the deep learning happens.  A donation of the requested supplies should get me throu the year, building my "tool box" for many years to come and growing strong and confident readers and writers.

My Students need 2 cases of copy paper, ink cartridges HP#74, HP#75, and Scotch thermal laminating pouches (8.9x11.4\").

Shelves to Read at Kainalu Elementary! [#311-0011]

School Name: Kainalu Elementary
Teacher: Sherri Brown
Grade: 1
I know you may ask how book shelves will help us read but they are almost as important as the books themselves!  A disorganized library is useless because students can't find good fit books, books get ruined and lost because they don't know where they belong, and they get discouraged when the books they choose are the wrong level.  These shelves will help me to organize our classroom library so students can better reach the books they need- and see what there is to offer!  Shelves will allow them to complete their reading/writing projects and gain fluency and vocabulary skills through reading books that are targeted to their current reading level (good fit books).  Students use a multitude of books each week and having the ability to keep them organized on shelves where they can reach them, instead of in cubbies where they are hidden will let us achieve our goal of everyone reading just right books.  Mahalo for your help!

All my students would benefit by allowing them to focus more fully (fewer distractions) and receive higher level Reading, Science and Math vocabulary exposure and development. If they can hear it AND see it they can make connections. A number of my students are English Language Learners (E.L.L.). The use of earphones would increase English Language development by helping them to recognize and attach meaning using both visual with audio cues.

My Students need 24 earphones for individual student computers.

Watch the Transformation with Butterflies! [#236-0002]

School Name: Wheeler Elementary
Teacher: Dana Shishido
Grade: 3rd
I collect caterpillars from crown flower plants that are nearly devoid of leaves. I bring the caterpillars into class, not only to learn about their life cycle and metamorphosis, but, lessons of respect.  I then need to drive around different communities to find crown flower plants that I am able to pick leaves from, to feed the caterpillars.  The children learn about the butterfly life cycle and metamorphosis.  They also see how something that may not look so "attractive" can transform into a beautiful thing.  The children are always amazed when we release the butterflies.  They gain a different perspective of respecting nature; especially as Monarch Butterflies are in danger of becoming endangered. I've been doing this for a few years, but my one tower is beginning to show its wear.  This past school year, we've released approximately 500 butterflies, as I've now become known as the "Butterfly Whisperer" at school, and people bring me caterpillars from their barren trees. I have classes from other grade levels taking "field trips" to my classroom to see the caterpillars/butterflies.  I've collected cuttings of the plants and asked my parents if I could plant them in their yard (I live in a townhouse) to make it easier for me to get leaves to feed the caterpillars.

My Students need 1 hanging netted butterfly tower, 4 standing netted towers w/ zipper enclosure,  budding flower plants (for butterfly food)

Magnetic Manipulatives for our Classroom! [#207-0007]

School Name: Hale Kula Elementary
Teacher: Kim Uyehara
Grade: 2nd
Every morning, our students count money and base ten blocks for practice.  Having a magnetic set of each will be much easier to use than drawing the problems out each morning.  They will also be helpful when we learn/practice in math to save time (instead of me drawing the examples), and will be more accurate representations for my students.

Organized for Success! [#311-0007]

School Name: Kainalu Elementary
Teacher: Sherri Brown
Grade: 1
Being organized in a classroom can make the difference of success or failure. I need to get my classroom book collection, or library, organized in labeled bins for ease of use by students. This year we are moving into a reader's workshop routine, where students gather books daily for their reading and language work. Students need to be able to find books that best fit their reading level so they can appropriately fill their workload. These 18 book bins will allow me to organize my classroom library. This will improve the ability of students to pick just right books so they can successfully move forward in their reading/language goals.

“Let’s Be Creative!” [#250-0003]

School Name: Kindergarten
Teacher: Marissa Noury
Grade: Kindergarten
Aloha! This is my first year teaching as I recently graduated with my Masters Degree from Chaminade University. I have had an exciting year incorporating art into language arts with projects such as Alphabet books, shared writing stories with oil pastel pictures, thematic art for units such as life cycles and seasons. I teach 20 students in kindergarten and have seen such growth this year. The students have become independent and ask for silent reading time as they know how to choose "just right" books and they love writing using phonics skills and varied writing topics. They are excited about coming to school and have good attitudes about learning and setting goals for themselves. These supplies would really help me in my classroom. For reading, I would like to create a reading zone that is inviting and the bean bag chairs would allow them to relax and become immersed in the literary world like their favorite authors Dr. Suess and Mo Willems. The art supplies will allow me to continue to use creative ideas to teach my students and allow them to show what they have learned through different mediums. Thank you for understanding that teachers can be resourceful but it takes community partnerships to build these successful and well-rounded educational foundations!

My Students need Reading center: 3 bean bag chairs (liked the solid colors, Circo brand from Target or Walmart)-about $29-$40 each Art centers: Watercolor sets (8 or 16 colors)-Crayola or Rose Art brand (25 pieces) Play doh-classic set (4 in a pack)-6 sets Mead-multi-colored construction paper-from SAMs Club or Costco

Increasing Literacy Skills for College-Bound Students! [#218-0002]

School Name: Leilehua High School
Teacher: Nicole Goodrich
Grade: 9-12
I teach an AVID class at Leilehua High School in Wahiawa. The class is for first generation college bound students. These are students whose families did not go to college or they are underrepresented minorities in four-year universities and colleges. I have found that many students do not have their own paperback books let alone hard copies. As advanced literacy skills are crucial to college success, I would like the class to read and discuss various novels during the year. Karen Russell's book Vampires in the Lemon Grove just finished as a finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Since many teenagers are interested in vampire stories these days, I thought the book would keep their interest. We will sometimes read it together in class for reading comprehension and vocabulary acquisition. Students will also have reading assignments for homework. Students will write a paper reflecting on a short story they related to, and they will also write an opinion piece on one of the stories. Lastly, students will give oral presentations in class.

My Students need I am requesting 20 paperback (or hard copies if paperback is not available) of Karen Russell's book Vampires in the Lemon Grove which was a finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.

Our class needs a strong, dependable pencil sharpener. Since school started, one pencil sharpener already broke and we only have one working pencil sharpener for 21 students. We use the sharpener everyday and at times, we cannot use the sharpener because it overheats. The crayon sharpener would help to lengthen the life of my students crayons. When crayons go dull, they are not used to their full potential. The jumbo magnetic money and the addition and subtraction flashcards would be used during math workshops and interventions. This will help students sharpen their math skills.

Unfortunately, good staplers are expensive and my small budget doesn't allow for luxuries like that.  A good manual stapler with help the students and when we need one portable, and an electric one will help when mass quantities of papers need stapling.  We would be so grateful to get the "staples" we need to help our class "Keep it together".  Mahalo for your consideration.

Rolling into Math ^(cubed) at Kamaile Academy! [#275-0007]

School Name: Kamaile Academy
Teacher: Jessica Sleeper
Grade: 3
Math Number Cubes are an excellent hands-on learning tool to teach, reteach, and re-enforce mathematical concepts.  Understanding place value and number concepts is a huge part of building mathematical conceptual knowledge.  Without number sense and place value understanding, more abstract mathematical concepts will not make sense and create confusion.  I have used number cubes in many classrooms and the excitement and engagement when students are involved in independent, cooperative, and whole group instruction is increased through the use of number cubes and activities.  Below are the descriptions of each set of number cubes.  More information can be found at: http://www.creativemathematics.com/learn/?s=dice#sthash.MmsOpYFR.dpuf . Decahedron Double Dice: Motivate students with these 10 sided double dice. The options include rolling addends or factors 0-9 to practice all basic facts. These dice can also be used to roll numbers 0-99 where the inside die generates the ones and the outside die generates tens. Decimals .00-.99 can be generated in the same fashion. The dice can also be used for fractions where the inside die is the numerator and the outside die is the denominator. Sold in packages of 8. Place Value Dice (ones, tens, hundreds) This bag of place value dice is just the tool for practicing expanded notation (form) to standardized notation (form) of numbers. The bag includes 4 sets of ones, tens and hundreds. These dice are modeled in Kim Sutton’s book, Place Value with Pizzazz. Each die is ten-sided so students can generate every possible number between 0 and 999. Now sold in packages of 4 sets of three for 12 total dice. Place Value Dice (0,000 - 900,000) This set of place value dice is just the tool for practicing expanded notation (form) to standardized notation (form) of numbers. This package includes 4 sets of 0,000, 00,000 and 000,000 dice. These dice are modeled in Kim Sutton’s book, Place Value with Pizzazz. Each die is ten-sided so students can generate every possible number between 0,000 and 900,000. Now sold in packages of 4 sets of three for 12 total dice. Place Value Decimal Dice (0.0 - 0.9) Our new Place Value Decimal Dice 0.0 to 0.9 go great with our other Place Value Dice and can be used for expanded place value, decimals, percent and operations. Each die is ten sided and is sold in packages of 10. Place Value Decimal Dice (0.00 - 0.09) Our new Place Value Decimal Dice 0.00 to 0.09 go great with our other Place Value Dice and can be used for expanded place value, decimals, percent and operations. Each die is ten sided and is sold in packages of 10. Dynamic Dice is filled with games and activities for K-5 using three unique kinds of dice: double dice, ten-sided double dice and place value dice. The games and activities are intended for reinforcement of basic facts, fractions and decimals, rounding, factoring, probability, coordinate graphing, number sense, and geometry. Dice are powerful motivational tools for meaningful mathematics. Kim’s new book, Dynamic Dice, will add a wonderful dimension to your classroom.

School Name: Kapolei Middle
Teacher: Annette Hockney
Grade: 6
I teach 6th grade math for over 100 students. To increase student engagement during the lessons, I often have the students use their individual dry erase boards. With so many students, I go through dry erase markers fast. The students love when we use them, and it is an easy way for me to do quick formative assessments on all of the students. They solve a problem and when I say "show" everyone holds up his or her board and I quickly scan the room to see who is getting the concept and who is not. I have already purchased the individual dry erase boards, mini erasers, and several marker refills with my own money. It would be nice to have a supply that would last for the remainder of the school year.

An assortment of board books to allow students to practice the concepts of print (e.g., how to hold a book right side up, reading from left to right & top to bottom, how to handle and take care of books).  When children first learn how to handle books, it helps to have a variety of durable books as they may throw, bite, step on, and treat the book as any other toy.  The strong structure of the board books help children develop control and strength in their small muscles (e.g., muscles in their fingers and hands).  Since board books are made to last, your donation will help many children refine and perfect their fine motor skills as well as develop an interest and hopefully love for books.

Cut-ups and Sharp Crayons [#117-0003]

School Name: Kaiulani Elementary School
Teacher: Lesley Yonan
Grade: second
Supporters should donate to this wish list because right now my students have to share scissors. Many times students take their scissors home to complete an assignment, and for whatever reason, the scissors never return. If I have a set of 20 scissors in my control, I can make sure they stay in the classroom... and we'll get more done! Supporters should help me get an electric sharpener for crayons because crayons will last a lot longer if students use them until the end. Too often dull crayons are not used to their potential! This product was voted by teachers as a great item in the magazine Instructor, so I am very excited about the chance to have one in my classroom. Thank you for reading about my Wish List! :)

X-Acto SchoolPro Heavy-Duty Electric Pencil Sharpener.

My Students need I need a quality electric pencil sharpener to keep my students stocked with writing utensils.  My sharpener died today...kaput!  We use this every morning and afternoon and now we have only little plastic manual ones.  Pencils aren't made quite as well as they used to be and some lead will fall out the second it is sharpened.  This will cause me to have to sharpen them over and over again.   A high quality sharpener would allow us to work without worrying if we will make it through the day with enough pencils.
Message from Students/Teacher: I cannot explain how important you are in my classroom. This year I moved up to first grade and had to remake all of my supplies and center items. Getting paper, printer ink and laminating sheets from supportmyclass.org, allowed me to quickly put together the resources I needed to support my 28 high achieving first graders. Because they are the high group, our curriculum doesn't support them well so being able to make games and activities with the supplies you granted me, allows me to continuously meet their needs. Let me tell you that there's nothing worse than a really smart kiddo who is bored!! With your help, my resources give these kids the opportunity they need to learn at their level and have fun while they are doing it-no boredom! I've included a few pictures of the games and anchor charts, and illustrations we were able to make with the supplies.

Bikes and Trikes for Coordination at Kailua Elementary! [#308-0002]

School Name: Kailua Elementary
Teacher: Deborah Morrow
Grade: Special Education Preschool
Preschoolers need lots of opportunities to use their gross-motor muscles to build coordination, strength, and balance. One way we provide these opportunities for little ones is through the use of trikes, scooters, and bikes with training wheels. They learn to coordinate their muscles to both pedal and steer and they build strength, balance, and endurance as they learn to pedal. Most of our wheeled toys have been donated to us second-hand and they are beginning to show some wear and tear, making some of them unsafe to use. As we retire these old toys, we would like to replace them. Any help you can provide to replace our old trikes, bikes, and scooters would be greatly appreciated! Sincerely, Debbie Morrow

We are in a Special Education classroom for grades K-2.  Since the students stay in the same classroom for at least three years, they have gone through all the books in our small classroom library numerous times.  Parents have commented that their children take the same books home time and time again.  I am always trying to get more books for our classroom library but funding is limited and I am only able to get a few new and used books a year to add to our collection.  Please help us promote literacy and expand our classroom library!

Marching Band at Nanakuli Needs a Piccolo! [#263-0012]

School Name: Nanakuli High and Intermediate School
Teacher: Blythe Koseki
Grade: 7-12
Every Band should have one Piccolo. Unfortunately, Our marching band is one of the only bands I have ever seen that does not own one. This is a very specific instrument that is incredibly important for many of the standard songs that are expected to be performed by a school band. In one of the most famous and important band songs ever written, Stars and Stripes Forever by John Philip Sousa, the entire second half of the song is dominated by the most famous piccolo solo of all time. Until we get a Piccolo, we will never be able to play that song.

Roller Coasters & Energy Transformations [#291-0005]

School Name: Kapolei Middle School
Teacher: Charlene Lenhart
Grade: 6
Making science learning a hands-on experience is so much more beneficial for students then just talking about it.  By having students design and build their own roller coasters with specific required elements, they can experience how potential energy transforms to kinetic energy and back again.  Student also use engineering skills to design the roller coasters to include the required specifications and have the right amount of energy at each part so the riders (marble) stays in contact with the track throughout the ride.  With the states focus on science, technology, engineering, and math this project allows students to become truly engaged in their own learning while focusing on these important content areas.

My Students need 6 sets of Quercetti Skyrail Marble Run Roller Coaster 250-pc. Set ($81.99 each)
Message from Students/Teacher: SupportMyClass.org has been amazing. In my science class I try to provide my students as many hands on experiences as possible and with the donation of the roller coaster kits my students will be able to learn about potential and kinetic energy while using their problem solving kits. Even though our unit will not be until later in the year, just seeing the boxes has my students excited and asking questions. Thank you SupportMyClass.org and our donors NRG Engery, Longs Drugs, and The Honolulu Star-Advertiser, my students and I couldn't be more excited.

Science is not just about numbers and labs, it's about creativity too! Those crazy scientists had to imagine great possibilities long before they could actually discover them! These supplies will help my students connect their creative side to the topics we are learning.  When they have quality supplies, they are more inspired to create quality work. My vision is that students take pride in their work because they want it displayed on the classroom walls. When this happens, other students will also see great examples of top-notch work.

School Name: Campbell High

We must evolve to keep pace with our dynamic and rapidly changing world :) Technology, such as an ipad mini, can offer students to access resources online and connect them with information such as: colleges, scholarships, vocational training, career explorations, and much more. With technology, teaching & learning becomes more meaningful and engaging. It will also be a tool to build self awareness and confidence by conducting mock interviews via video clip and/or voice record. Students can evaluate/assess themselves to make improvements.

Lights, Camera, Math! [#301-0011]

School Name: James B. Castle High
Teacher: Koren Uyemura
Grade: 9-12
I need an easy upload camcorder to record student presentations and project work. I want to incorporate more technology into the classroom and provide opportunities for students to create basic video projects based on demonstrating their understanding of the math concepts. Video production is a fun and engaging tool for motivating students to learn the material without even realizing that they'll be learning math in the process! Video production does require time to record and edit, so having an easy upload camcorder will help minimize post-production time to edit and complete presentations. This particular camcorder is also very durable and sturdy (even waterproof just in case) especially when so many students will be using it to record projects in class. The camcorder also is full high definition digital recording which requires no video tape, so it's very low maintenance/cost as far as buying extra tape to record. In addition to providing opportunity to use technology, the video production process could trigger career interests for my students. I am very excited to try this in class if provided with the resource! Mahalo!...

Incentive Store items needed at Maili Elementary! [#257-0001]

School Name: Maili Elementary
Teacher: Stacey Hunt
Grade: 5th
I am a teacher at Ma'ili elementary and teach 5th grade reading and math.  I have a so called, "rewards store" and students earn points when they behave well and follow rules in class. They can save their points and use it to buy things at the "rewards store" at the end of each week. The various items cost different points depending on the value of the item.  Behavior is sometimes a challenge in class and having a "rewards store" provides those who are always following rules a small prize and it also helps provide incentive for those more challenged.   The children love it.  It's a great incentive. I use my own money and don't mind doing so but anyone who would like to help donate to my treasure box would be more than appreciated. Sincerely, Mrs. Stacey Hunt

My Students need Any small new toys like McDonalds type, stuffed animals, bulk items like pencils, erasers, candies, cookies, crackers, gift cards to Costco, Sams club, Walmart, etc. to purchase such items for my \"rewards store\".

This year we have started a new class which exposes students to an in depth study of the Spanish language and culture.  We are learning different traditional dances from around Latin America and will focus on Mexican Ballet Folkloriko. We would love to have at least four practice skirts for girl dancers and four sombreros for the guys.  Having these materials will provide an authentic experience for the students.  These items will allow the students to fully immerse themselves into the Spanish culture through dance. Our goal is to perform in front of the entire school during Hispanic Heritage Month, Cinco de mayo, Culture Week, and other school and community events.  Students will also travel to neighboring schools and perform with their skirts and sombreros as well, and teach others how to dance ballet folkloriko.  This will help to expose the community to the beauty that is Mexican traditional dances- el ballet folkloriko.

Life Science Unit needs Incubator! [#353-0002]

School Name: Kea'au Elementary
Teacher: Kellee Kelly
Grade: 2
I currently do a life cycle unit where we discuss the need of organisms dependency on each other. Last year I used enclosed ecosystems with a bottom water biome and a top terra biome that consisted of bugs, fish, plants, etc. We discussed/observed how this self contained ecosystem can survive without any help from us. We also investigated the role of each of the organisms. Next year, I would like to add chick hatching to the unit. I live in a strong agricultural community where relevancy is high for self sustainability. I would now like to ask the kids how and why about their surroundings. Watching and monitoring the eggs and maintaing small hatchlings would enhance the unit by adding temperature and time conditions, and then physical environmental needs of the hatchlings. This unit is rich with inquiry, relevancy, rigor, and integration into other subject areas. I would greatly appreciate the donation of an incubator to help make this unit great!

Change – computer printer and stopwatch! [#214-0001]

School Name: Leilehua High
Teacher: William Ganiko
Grade: 9
I have asked the Physical Education Department for a computer which is necessary to input grades, attendance, communicate (email) with faculty, and parents.  I settled for a laptop that is 4 years old instead of requesting a new model.  I understand the financial hardships our school is going through so I'm very understanding of the situation that I put myself in.  But I do not have a printer to call my own.  Better yet, I don't even have a classroom!  It would be nice to have a portable/wireless printer if there is such a thing.  It would be more convenient than walking to the library to print materials or asking another teacher to print things out when they have their own tasks to meet. A stopwatch is just a timing mechanism that I could use in timing exercises, workouts, activities instead of using my phone.  We're trying to keep our students from using their phones in class and needing to use mine for a stopwatch defeats the whole purpose. Thank you for creating this site for those who give so much yet receive so little respect.

I also wanted them to illustrate, hence I wanted the special art pencils, color pencils, and paint. I might initially start with one class, as a reward, for their good work, and seeing how successful this project is, I might expand the project to include other classes later in the year. I'm not sure about the cost or where to get bound books but anyone that is willing to buy at least 35 of those for me at a discount price, that would be awesome. :)

Therapy Swing for Students with Autism! [#321-0001]

School Name: Maunawili Elementary
Teacher: Meg Murphy
Grade: K-6
A swing has been shown as an effective method to address sensory integration with children with Autism and other disabilities.  Currently I have 3 students with Autism that often seek this sensory input in unsafe and disruptive behaviors.  The occupational therapist has been working with these students to address their dynamic sensory needs. In her expert knowledge, a swing would be the best way to address the sensory needs of 3 of the students.  With that, there are a lot of other students within the school that would benefit from a swing as a form of sensory input. The parts that I would like to order have been too expensive for the classroom to purchase using fundraising money for the past couple of years.  The team at the school has already identified a location for the swing within a sensory classroom that is currently being established within the school. The featured swing would be hanging from a beam in the sensory room  and the rotational devise would be used for the students that have the sensory need to go in a circle or be spun.

Hawaiian Books for the Keiki of Lanai! [#415-0013]

School Name: Lanai High & Elementary
Teacher: Rebecca Ferguson
Grade: 5th
I am currently finishing my first year teaching in Hawaii on the island of Lana'i. I have always been interested in Hawaiian culture but admittedly knew very little about it until moving and working here. We have been fortunate enough to receive training and some courses on the culture, practices, beliefs, and history of the islands and it only made me more curious. I would love for my students to have the same curiosity of their culture and develop their knowledge from a young age. It is my hope to build a wonderful library in my classroom filled with children's literature based on Hawaiian legends, myths, characters, settings, language etc. These books can be expensive so developing this library will take some time and any donation would be greatly appreciated.

High Tide in Hawaii books for Lanai Students! [#415-0012]

School Name: Lanai High & Elementary
Teacher: Rebecca Ferguson
Grade: 5th
I enjoy doing book studies/guided reading with my students and  I feel this book would grab their interest as it takes place in our state of Hawaii. In my small group classes I teach struggling readers who sometimes have limited fluency, phonics, and vocabulary. Reading texts with familiar words, context, and settings help the students build confidence and interest. This confidence then enables them to move on to reading more challenging books with broader topics.

My Students need I would like a class set (10 books) of the novel High Tide in Hawaii by Mary Pop Osborne. I enjoy doing book studies/guided reading with my students and  I feel this book would grab their interest as it takes place in our state.

Scholastic News Nonfiction for 2nd Graders on Lanai! [#415-0011]

School Name: Pomaikai Elementary
Teacher: Nicole Heinlein
Grade: 5
My school is working hard to implement the new Common Core standards, but we are working with a curriculum that is almost 10 years old and does not provide the rigor of nonfiction text for students to read.  By reading Scholastic News every week, my students will be able to read high quality nonfiction articles at their reading level.  They are also interesting articles that help integrate social studies themes.  We do not have a social studies curriculum at all, so this subscription will help me better teach those standards.

My Students need I would like a class subscription to Schlastic News to help integrate Common Core Informational Text standards, as well as hawaii's Social Studies standards.

Message from Students/Teacher: A big Makakilo Mahalo to Mr. Among, Sr. and Ms. Yeackel of Buzz's Steakhouse for their generous donation. The students absolutely love the new pencil sharpener and the clipboards. At our school, the heat can sometimes be unbearable in the classroom (no AC). It is very difficult for the students to focus on their work. However, with your wonderful donation, we can take the learning outside, sit under the shade of the trees, feel the cool tradewinds, and view the beautiful Pacific Ocean with Diamond Head in sight. The new clipboards and pencil sharpener truly enhances the students learning. Also, a big Makakilo Mahalo to Ms. Francine Stevens (PCNC) who introduced SupportMyClass to our faculty.

Kaimuki High School Performing Arts Center [#115-0001]

School Name: Kaimuki High School
Teacher: MJ Matsushita
Grade: 9-12
Over the years, we have been recycling and reusing our lumber goods.Much of our plywood has been reduced to very small pieces, and we are at the point that we don't have sheets big enough to build our scenery, and need to replenish the basic stock. Also, our hand tools have dwindled to a mere few, due to breakage or theft, and our class sizes have increased. Often times,we don't have enough tools to keep everyone active through out the class. It would help immensely to have enough safe tools for everyone to use. We have been using a supply of donated paint from 5 years ago. Most of what is left are colors that we can't use, or the paint has deteriorated to the point of being unsafe to open for the stench.  We would like to restock on the basic needs. Our choral director desperately needs new sheet music and collections for the kids.  We haven't been able to purchase new music in 3 years, and what we have it getting very tired. Our acting teacher would love to have new scripts of some of the more recent releases, and new monologue books. Our monologue books are from the 1990s when last we had resources to replenish the books. Our program has been thriving, but by the skin of our teeth. we have been surviving on the kindness of local vendors for cast offs and donations. We are a program of excellence for the Performing Arts.  every year we are able to produce high quality productions.  Thanks to the scrounging abilities of our teachers and the parents.  it would be lovely to have lumber that wasn't full of staples and screw holes to construct out scenery.

Central Theatre Arts Academy [#216-0002]

School Name: Mililani High School
Teacher: Jamie Stroud
Grade: 9-12
Central Theatre Arts Academy (CTAA) is a state funded performing arts learning center that teaches kids all aspects of theatre including design, construction and performance. We have recently faced a nearly 50% cut in our funding, yet we still continue to serve children from all over O'ahu. Our last musical involved kids from 8 different public schools, and the year before, students from 12 different public schools came to our learning center for an opportunity to perform. Our desire to reach as many kids as we can is impeded by funding, equipment, and supplies. Oftentimes when working with children, our tools, which are used frequently, get especially run down. Right now, impact drivers and sewing machines are our greatest needs. Sometimes we have schools that would like to be more involved, but the distance to come to class and rehearsals regularly becomes a hindrance. If we had funds to go towards hiring a teacher for a smaller group of kids to do a small scale production at one of those schools, we could use our larger facility at Mililani for their performances, utilizing more CTAA kids to work the technical aspects of their production. Really, it's all about reaching as many kids as we can! You can learn more about who we are at www.CentralTheatreArtsAcademy.org Thank you for taking the time to read our request!

Every year I have more and more students, like myself, who have allergies or asthma so it is important to dust /clean often. If the students get sick and have to stay home, they are not learning as much as they would be if they were in school. I have been looking for the Bob Books because I have to replenish my supply.

DREAM BIG: Reading, Writing and Math! [#282-0016]

School Name: Kapolei Elementary School
Teacher: Miranda Kufs
Grade: 5th grade special education
Aloha, I teach in a 5th grade special education classroom where students come from their general education classroom to receive small group instruction in reading, writing, and math. My students' abilities range from year to year, but they typically all struggle with fundamental basics such as decoding, comprehension, writing conventions, and foundational math skills such as knowing their multiplication and division facts. Often times my students have difficulty focusing on a lesson or being able to sit still while doing their independent work. For this reason I include a variety of activities that keep the kids moving, or give them something to work with in their hands. Even though these kids are learning foundational skills to help them bridge the gap between where they are currently performing and what is expected of them as a 5th grader, they are still held accountable for all 5th grade content as they must take the state tests. I teach them the foundational skills they need while also introducing them to the grade level material they must be familiar with. Some of the grade level stuff is really tough for my kids! Providing them materials they can hold in their hands such as counters, wipe-off cards, game pieces, etc really helps them understand the material and stay focused and engaged during the lesson. As our state moves from the Hawaii Content & Performance Standards to implementing the Common Core State Standards, I am gathering new resources that will help me successfully teach the different set of standards. The materials I have listed are materials I just can't justify spending my own limited special education funds on, as there are bigger priorities such as printer ink, paper, and other office supplies I need to purchase to have my classroom run efficiently. The materials I have listed are *dream* items I would love to be able to share with my students as it will help to engage them in beneficial activities that are based in the new Common Core State Standards. I love making our daily learning activities colorful, varied, and fun - LakeShore materials have always encouraged learning, interest, and creativity in my classroom. The Common Core math Learning Center and Analyzing/Making Inference Teaching Kit will provide the hands-on activities that promote understanding of tough grade level concepts among my students. The Text Library I put on the list will give me samples of grade level text that I can use to read to my students so that they are given opportunities to experience that kind of text complexity in a guided manner. Any help is greatly appreciated by myself and the students that will pass through this classroom. Mahalo for you consideration.

The students will use the camera to take pictures of class events and write a caption underneath the picture. We could practice many language arts standards by creating titles, writing paragraphs, and designing maps or diagrams. Thank you for considering my project!...

Business Academy Basics needs Paper Towels, Tissue and Clorox Wipes! [#292-0008]

School Name: Kailua High School
Teacher: Kehau Agena
Grade: 10
I’m so excited at just the thought of getting tissues! We go through at least one full box a week for our 185 students (it is a precious commodity). As we are not an elementary school, our students don't bring supplies (I'm always jealous of the elementary school's supply lists). :) We, my teammates and I, spend most of our own money on basics like Kleenex, paper towels and Clorox wipes. Any help will be appreciated so much! ...

Broken Calculators = Frustrated Students. We need Calculators! [#107-0003]

School Name: Mayor Joseph J. Fern Elementary
Teacher: Casi Kamei
Grade: 3
For third quarter Math, we are learning how to covert fractions into decimals. Imagine trying to compare fractions without a calculator. That is the situation my students are facing. There are not enough calculators in the classroom and the ones that I have are missing buttons or the screen doesn't work correctly. If this projects gets funded, all the students will be able to have their own calculators and will not have to share or fight over them. These calculators will be used during math instruction, HSA tests, and monthly Edison math tests....

My Students need My students need calculators. A class set of 30 calculators will be gladly appreciated.

We need new pencil sharpeners!!! [#200-0001]

School Name: Aiea Elementary School
Teacher: Jennifer Keawe
Grade: 1st
Please help my students' pencils stay sharp!!! It's amazing how fast we go through pencil sharpeners. The regular office ones don't last us long enough or they overheat. We would greatly appreciate a couple of heavy duty pencil sharpeners....

My Students need My students and I could really use a couple of heavy duty pencil sharpeners.

Interactive Science Notebooks [#219-0002]

School Name: Moanalua Middle
Teacher: Krista Keiser
Grade: 7th grade science
Each student started the year with a composition book to transform into their Interactive Science Notebook, but now those notebooks are starting to fill up! They have worked so hard on their notebooks. I have a limited supply, but not enough to give each student. This donation would give us a supply that will last us until the end of the year and into next year! We thank you so much for your generosity!...

Document camera [#216-0003]

School Name: Mililani High
Teacher: Sheila Yuasa
Grade: 11th
I will say upfront that I do have technology in my classroom in the form of a Promethean board. However, this device does not allow me to project pages of a novel or of student work to discuss. I think my classes would benefit from being able to do these things. Some of my students can't (or won't:) purchase required novels. This camera would allow them to at least read the passages under discussion. Students can also benefit from sharing examples of their work....
