My Students

Our school is a wonderful and amazing place to be! The students enter school every day eager and ready to learn. They have a wonderful and natural curiosity about the world. The students are each unique learners, but each one has many special gifts to offer to the world. The students come from diverse backgrounds with a variety of languages and cultures. What makes us special is our strong sense of community.

We work together to create a classroom culture that fosters creativity, hard work, acceptance, and celebrations of both successes and failures as an important part of learning.

Each day, I am fascinated by my students' drive and the ways they continually find to support each other! They work and learn through play and conversation as well as through their written work.

My Project

"There are perhaps no days of our childhood we lived so fully as those we spent with a favorite book."-Marcel Proust

Each student will be allowed to choose a special book to take home on his/her birthday and keep forever!

Each time a child receives a new book, they treasure it! It is not uncommon to see students walking around holding it, taking it to recess to read, or leaving it out on their desk as a reminder of their excitement of receiving a new book. The books included in this project are some of the most popular series for our students including the "I Survived" series, Dork Diaries, Dogman, Masterminds and Elephant and Piggie. This will enable all readers at our school to find a book that suits them. This project will ensure that every student in our school, regardless of any other factors, will receive a shiny new book of choice and be recognized on their special day. These books will be theirs to take home and share with their families, fostering parent involvement and promoting literacy.

Our school is currently closed for the rest of the year, and this grant will help fill our shelves so we can keep this amazing program going for next year!

Thank you so much for your consideration of this project!
