My Students

Our elementary campus serves Pre-k through 5th grade students. We are a campus that practices the Leader in Me program, based on Steven Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

Our students are true leaders at school and at home.

It's a way of life that everyone at our school practices, from administration and staff, to our youngest students.

The skills they learn through the Leader in Me program carry over into academics as the students learn to set and reach goals, be accountable for their actions, and plan for the future!

My Project

We are in need of various basic supplies for stations and small group instruction. This includes mini whiteboards, dry erase pockets, paper trays, book bags, and pencil pouches.

It's amazing how these basic supplies can make all the difference in a daily instructional routine!

We will use the mini whiteboards during phonics instruction. Students will use the pencil pouches to store their board, marker, eraser, and magnetic letters. The dry erase pockets will be used for both math and literacy stations. These are an easy way to change out practice sheets! Paper trays will provide additional storage for station supplies.
