My Students

Our students come from all corners of Fresno Unified through a magnet lottery system. Our kindergarten classes are a full day visual and performing arts based academic program. Our students come from all walks of life; ethnic, socio-ecomonic, cultural, religious etc.. and bring an openness and tolerance to our class.

Our students love coming to school each day spending time both inside and outside their classrooms.

They enjoy learning and playing together which helps develop strong social skills.

My Project

Due to heavy student foot traffic and our large healthy trees blocking the growth of grass, the path and play space from the entrance gate to the play structure is dirt and dust and does not allow for grass growth.

With the installment of a couple of large pieces of PZG artificial grass, students will have a dirt free, dust free place to sit, play and interact with each other.

Having a large piece of PZG artificial grass will allow our students to play interactive games to help them develop social skills. The PZG artificial grass will also cut down on breathing problems, the time out of class used to change muddy clothes and scraps and bumps from falling on hard pack dirt.
