My Students

I teach in a Title I school in North Carolina and many of my students are at risk of academic failure. This is many of my students' first time in a school setting. The early learners in my class are more interested in the process of discovering and manipulating materials than the final products of their experiments.

Learning experiences are meaningful and relevant for every child and reflect his or her developmental, cultural, and individual circumstances.

My students love to move and be active. However, because of recent budget cuts, we are unable to purchase additional resources such as the ones requested.

My Project

The end of the school year is quickly approaching. My children need party supplies to have a graduation to remember. We cannot afford very many parties for our students and this end-of year celebration can be the best of this year. We can buy cupcakes but we need a few more items to make this day a special graduation day for the students and their parents. You can help make this a day the children will always remember.

We will be utilizing the swag bags, party decorations, and volley balls for a preschool graduation at the end of May to show the importance of this milestone in their child's life.

It will also showcase the strength of education and knowledge that their children have received over the past year. Thank you for taking the time to read and possibly fund our proposal.
