My Students

Our students come from many diverse backgrounds. 100% of our students receive a free lunch. We attend an inner city school, where more than half of the students commute for the education we provide. We have healthy foods and a garden, and we speak seven different languages at home.

Our school is a bright, happy place where a university education is our goal!

Students learn in classrooms where experience solidifies the curriculum! Our walls are covered in student innovation and creativity! Students are always encouraged to voice their opinion!

My Project

In our independent and guided reading, students are encouraged to choose their own books. Choosing the correct book level is an important and difficult task for 5th graders.

If books are organized by author, book level, and topic, self book selection will be facilitated.

Boxing and labeling books in colored bins on shelves will make it easier for the students to select books that interest them. Their choices will be narrowed down to level and subject. They will be able to borrow books, and return them with ease. Keeping the books organized now is a huge waste of valuable time!
