My Students

“With the new day comes new strengths and new thoughts.” -Eleanor Roosevelt

We have a diverse school, with many students spending their childhood in two or more elementary schools.

We work hard to build and maintain relationships because we often see students returning to our school at some point. They come from a variety of backgrounds, circumstances, and family structures.

They work hard to do the best they can given any circumstances they might be facing. We try to provide a caring and nurturing environment so they can focus on their education and not any other struggles during the day.

My Project

We are in need of replenishing some of our basic supplies and enhancing our "work with partner" areas. We are in constant need of cardstock for center activities, projects, and game boards and pieces.

Interactive activities are engaging in all areas.

We will use Hot Dot Power Pen! games and activities during reading and math centers. We are in need of additional math quiz cards to help students learn important skills. We also need additional reading comprehension cards to practice skills with our partners during literacy activities. Since we are at various levels we have requested third and fourth grade cards to help us.

Lastly, chart paper will be used to help model concepts and create anchor charts for students to reference. All of these materials will be used to help push us to the next level.
