My Students

My students need basic supplies to complete STEAM assignments. Our students come from diverse backgrounds and cultures. My school is a growing, bilingual, elementary school located in Southeast, Washington, DC. It's home to close to six hundred students. Each and every student inspires me daily.

Our free lunch population is near one hundred percent.

In spite of many challenges, our students come to school ready to read, draw, write , think critically and ready to discover (science and technology). We encourage our students to look beyond challenges and thrive.

My Project

I want to provide basic materials like pens, pencils, glue sticks, rulers, paper clips, scissors, and rubber bands in order to make Mathematics and other subjects fun. Some of my students will not have the basic materials for school and I want to provide writing utensils and basic supplies for my students who do daily practice problems in math class, experiments in science class, artwork in art class and writing in ELA class.

Providing supplies for each and every student will always be my goal.

And your donations will help reach us that goal. Thank you in advance for your support.
