My Students

Our school is a welcoming environment with a strong belief in building on the talents and experiences of our diverse student population. 76.5% of our students come from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, 25% are English learners, and more than 96% are students of color.

My class is made up of 32 enthusiastic students who are ready to learn and grow together.

We work hard to build a strong and supportive classroom community in which everyone can and will succeed. We learn and grow together through the sharing of our individual backgrounds and stories. Each perspective is respected and valued.

My Project

Our hardworking custodians work to keep our learning environment clean on a daily basis. However, accidents happen and I want to make sure my students' environment is clean and allergy free.

When there are 32 students in a classroom, spills, muddy shoes, and dust are inevitable.

We are lucky enough to have a lovely playground for the students to play, but despite our best efforts, the mud and grass from the playground gets tracked in, dust accumulates in corners, scraps of paper drop on the floor, and rugs begin to get stained. This vacuum cleaner and filters will allow us to tackle these spills and stains quickly so that we can get back to learning.
