Our charter school is among the highest performing schools for African American students in the state, despite serving a student body that's primarily low-income. We emphasize a culture of high expectations and celebrate academic achievement, seeking to plant the notion “I will go to college” in each of our scholars early and often.
The students in my class are all East African and many are new to the country.
Despite many challenges they face as immigrants, they are enthusiastic and ready to learn! I would like for them to have the best academic experience they possibly can.
Our classroom is dreary, unorganized, and in desperate need of some color. We are looking for cheerful supplies to help us stay organized, promote learning, and to simply make school a more inviting place to learn and grow.
Adding plants to the classroom will not only brighten our space but will be an excellent learning opportunity for my scholars!
In this project I have included materials that students need to learn and create such as markers, highlighters, and glue. As well as microfiber facial scrubs that make great and inexpensive dry erase eraser. As well as brightly colored storage materials to make the room organized and more inviting. Plus, I've added an Aerogarden so students can have the opportunity to plant and harvest their own greens right in the classroom!
