What will the funds be used for

I teach at a title I school in Louisiana. Many of my students do not fulfill their beginning of the year school supply lists. By Christmas we are usually depleted of paper towels, tissue , pencils, etc. the beginning of the year I spend a lot of my own money on classroom supplies not brought in by the students. I also spend my money to provide students with weekly rewards . Students are required to have mesh school bags and many times i have provided that so that my students are under code. If the students have their necessary basic supplies , we can focus on learning and not where they are going to get paper, pencils, crayons, etc from.
