My Students

The culture of our school is tightly woven with cultural and ethnic diversity, and it is a beautiful place to be! The children have a desire to learn no matter - or, perhaps, because of the circumstances from which they come.

Our student body comes from a multitude of backgrounds; over twenty-two nations, with twenty-nine languages spoken.

Over 56% of our students are English Language Learners. These students face many challenges, but are eager to learn and be successful in their new school.

My Project

Our school will be hosting a Literacy Night for Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade students and their families. The goal of the event is to give students and parents the necessary tools they need to become successful readers.

The event will feature various stations with hands on activities , informational hands outs and books for all students to promote a synergy around reading.

Most of our students come from diversified backgrounds, we currently are 56% English Language Learners. The event will be a way for students and families to attain information around literacy and promote and support their young readers.

The main station will have books levels A thru M which is where most of our K-2nd grade students are reading. Each student will be given a book representing the level they are reading at and another at the next level to encourage them to read and grow. Many of our families are confused around book selection, especially our newcomers. By showcasing a table with the various levels of reading will be helpful for families as they decide what type of books to purchase. Most of all the gifted books will be cherished by the students as they can read them over and over again at home.
