My Students

My students are amazing! Our school is located in a rural part of central California in the foothills of the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountains. We love our community and the natural resources we have in our area.

Many of my students come from middle to low-income families.

My students come to school every day excited to learn something new and ready to take on a new challenge. While our students have many obstacles in their lives, they persevere and succeed.

My Project

This year I have a few students on the Autism spectrum. They have a hard time focusing. Every little thing seems to bother them. I am requesting high quality Bose noise cancelling headphones to help them block the everyday noise of the classroom. My students are also bothered by the glare of the sun, so I am asking for window tint to help alleviate the glare that currently distracts them.

My students need tools to block out the distractions.

My students are very capable learners when they have the right tools. These items I am requesting will help them block it out!
