My Students

My students are an amazing group of students who are always willing to work hard in and out of the classroom. They come to school prepared to learn, not just the academic curriculum, but also about being productive citizens in our community.

My school holds great importance on both academics and developing a well-rounded child, with great emphasis on behavior.

This allows each child to feel respected in their classroom and school community, which in turn will create wonderful learning experiences!

My Project

I am asking for canvas boards and paint brushes that will allow my students to create a piece of work like true artists. We will work on a collaborative art and science lesson that will focus on animals, plants and biodiversity. We will use our knowledge to create living environments for animals and plants.

My students will make connections through science and art and learn about the importance of biodiversity in our communities.

We will create our masterpieces using our new canvases and brushes. Please be a part of making a huge difference in the lives of many amazing students.
