My Students

My school is a public, charter school. I have a bright and eager to learn a group of Kindergarten students.

My school has a diverse population of students; many of whom receive free or reduced lunch.

A large proportion of students speak English as a Second Language. Many students do not have the ability to bring in basic supplies to share in the classroom. Many of my students have ADD and ADHD and would benefit from having these items in our classroom as well. They are so excited to come to school each and every day.

My Project

My students need pencils, pencil cases and glue to start off the school year. Many students do not have the funding to come into school with their own supplies. I would like to be able to start off the year by having pencils, pencil cases and glue sticks for each of my kindergarten students. For a lot of children, kindergarten is their very first year of school and I would like to be able to start it off with the basic supplies each student needs. I would love for each student to have the same basic supplies on the first day of school and have it be a special experience for them.
