My Students

Although all St. Louis Schools have been ordered closed, we are continuing to provide daily instruction to our students. Your gift will ensure that our students from under-served families connect to their teachers and virtual lessons.

At my school, children learn through hands-on exploration and cross-curricular instruction, supported by a STEAM-focused curriculum.

It is our goal to continue that mission even through Distance Learning. We were able to provide our learners with various forms of technology and hot spots so, that all students are able to access our education platforms.

My Project

I have selected items to make a boredom buster kit for learners to use while at home. Each kit will include a first grade Brain Quest workbook to keep their minds sharp until we return to school and books for them to read at their independent reading level. I also included pencil sharpeners so, that they can continue to use the pencils we sent home we closed on March 16th.

Bubbles are a great tool for self-regulation and taking deep breathes during a stressful time, but also help to bust boredom.
