My Students

Our school serves students in grades PreK-6 and provides rigorous academics, fantastic teachers, and a safe learning environment. My class consists of inner-city children, with greater than 76% of them being low-income children, including many children who have experienced trauma in their lives. They enjoy coming to school, are excited to learn daily, and appreciate what they have.

Despite so many hardships, they are eager to learn and do their best.

My students want to be in school to experience friendships, structure, and to learn they can be successful. The tools to help them succeed will provide a path to academic excellence.

My Project

My fourth-grade students are constantly looking for creative tools and ideas to bring home to share with their families. The children in my class need Oracal 651 Glossy Vinyl Roll 12 Inches by 150 Feet in Black and White and Permanent Adhesive Backed Vinyl Sheets by EZ Craft USA - 12" x 12" - in Assorted Colors to bring their creativity to life! The vinyl transfer tape will be used to transfer their work onto an object that can be brought home.

Many of my students cannot afford to buy gifts for their family members and prefer to make something special instead.

These items will be valuable additions to our classroom!
