Our Title I school is located in Southern California and is surrounded by three correctional facilities. This year, our school was funded, allowing us to give every student a free breakfast and lunch. Our school's population is around 400 students with various ethnic backgrounds.
Approximately 14% of our school population is comprised of children who are in the foster care system.
We also have a large number of homeless families who live in motels/hotels and broken-down travel trailers that do not have running water or working electricity. Often, our students come to school without having had a warm meal or a consistent place to lay their heads and sleep.
My amazing class is full of energetic, sweet, and smart students within the grade levels of 3rd through 5th. Our class has been designed as a mild to moderate Special Academic Instruction (SAI) setting that has students with disabilities ranging from Autism to Emotionally Disturbed. We are a self-contained, full day special needs class with children who love to use all different types of modalities to learn!
My students severely need a 2 and 3 electric hole punchers! We only have one of each of these devices on school premises. Teachers from 33 classes are checking them out on a daily basis. My students have art work and academic work they wish to place in a 3 ring binder, yet our hole punch just broke. It seems that every time I buy a typical device, it breaks within months to maybe a year. It would be lovely if students could hole punch their work themselves and showcase what they wish with a few brand new hole punchers. Thank you for viewing our project. Have a wonderful afternoon!
