Through the charitable organization, donorschoose.org, two Marsh Middle School teachers are hoping to get some much-needed funding for their classroom projects.

One aims to provide lab materials so 140 students can actually experience science. The class needs things like clipboards and lab coats, which amounts to more than $800 in cost.

The other project from Marsh is much more basic – flashcards, so history and geography students can learn proper study skills. All the class needs is 240 index cards, which costs more than $450.

Anyone can donate money to the two projects electronically and leave a friendly comment. Both projects are categorized as “high poverty”. That’s based on the overall economic need of the students, how many are on free and reduced lunch and whose family income is no more than $23,920. Marsh is a Title 1 school with 77 percent of students eligible for free or reduced lunch.
