My Students

My Pre-Kindergarten students are enthusiastic "college bound" learners! They are intelligent, young students, but the reality is that their socioeconomic statuses and zip codes put them at an academic disadvantage, as compared to their more affluent peers. They are in dire need of having access to quality materials, both inside and outside of the classroom. However, providing them with the supplies necessary to learn in this context is a struggle due to severe budget cuts.

For most of my students, this is their first experience in a structured learning environment.

I want to be able to make their first learning experience hands-on and fun!

My Project

One of the first things that I teach my students is how to share. However, sharing germs is NOT something that we encourage. A classroom filled with 20 four year olds means many sneezes, bathroom breaks, runny noses, and yes... germs! The hand soap and paper towels that I am requesting will be a huge help in reducing the spread of germs in my classroom. My students will use it routinely throughout the day to wash hands before lunch, and snack, and after using the bathroom, coming in from outside, sneezing, blowing their nose, etc. We go through soap and paper towels fast with so many hands to wash.

My students develop incredibly positive attitudes, and consistently demonstrate much enthusiasm for learning.

They work their absolute hardest to be good friends, follow rules and procedures, demonstrate self-control, and always try their hardest and never give up! I want to be able to motivate and reward my students for their positive choices, dedicated effort, and encouraging and compassionate attitudes. We need prizes for our prize box so that students can choose a reward for being “College Bound” learners and kind friends at the end of every week!

My students are inner-city "college bound" learners who deserve a healthy learning environment, and to be rewarded for their good choices and positive attitudes. I want them to be proud of their progress and work! The painters tape will be used to hang their work in the classroom and hallway so that they can see their work on display.

Please consider helping provide my students with the supplies needed to be healthy, successful, motivated, and positive learners!
