My Students

My students come from many different cultural and economic backgrounds. They speak various languages and they have kind hearts. They make us proud every day. We are a Title I school with fantastic students who are eager to learn! All my students want is to learn and have people believe in them. They want to do well and want to make their families proud. I have faith in them, and so can you; they just need teachers, and supplies in the classroom and an environment that can help them get there.

My Project

The items like the wooden arbor, the straight and curved pathways, and the solar lights will really help us develop a warm and inviting garden at our school. We want to make this into a true outdoor classroom!

It is important to us that when we go out to take care of our garden, enjoy the garden while reading, and go out to have learning experiences in our garden that we have a safe pathway through the flowers and plants.

We know that with these materials we will be able to enjoy our garden and all of the students at our school will also enjoy our garden as well.
