My Students

We work hard to make sure that our class not only is building academically but socially. We work hard every day to become better people and better students. We are in a low socio-economic area and are learning about the world around us. Our goal is to leave the school year with an understanding of how we can affect our world positively. This is our final year in elementary school and we want to be the mentors the younger kids at our school need to see for their examples of how to act.

My Project

We need some Amplification for the classroom and outside. Saving the teachers voice. We also are asking for Notebook to use for multiple subjects.

This is a title one school where classroom supplies are not in abundance around the area.

My students are not able to bring in their own supplies most times. The notebooks would be used as our reading and math notebooks in the classroom. Also, We do not have any amplification technology in our classroom as well. This would be used both in the classroom as classroom amplification and also out of the classroom during our P.E times. Your help is greatly appreciated from our students and your donation will be put to GREAT use
