My Students

Hello,

I have 24 of the sweetest, most eager first-grade students.

We are located in a high poverty district, where most students qualify for the free or reduced lunch program. Many of our students speak 2 languages, and often have not had a preschool experience. We have lots of work to do in the 6 hours we are together, so our days are packed full. We use every minute of every school day to help our students grow as learners and thinkers.

My Project

I would like to create a classroom environment where children can feel safe and comfortable. As we build our community of readers, writers, and thinkers our hope is that the students will begin to feel safe and start to take risks in their learning.

Our current rug is falling apart and does not have enough room for all of my wonderful students.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.

My goal is for these students to feel like they are part of our classroom community where they will always feel safe and nurtured in our calming environment.
