My Students

Patrick Elementary is the smallest school in our Southern Oregon district and home to just under three hundred students. We currently educate students in grades Kindergarten through fifth grade. At our school, we are faced with a high poverty and homeless population. Our students are dependent upon finding a safe and secure environment here in which they are able to learn. This is often the main place in which they feel at home.

Meeting their mental, physical, emotional, social and academic needs is a constant concern and focus for our staff.

We have limited resources by which to accomplish these important goals.

Our students are curious, inquisitive, engaged and excited about learning. As a school, we strive to meet our student's curiosity and excitement with tools and resources to prepare them for their learning journey. I have 27 active students in my second-grade classroom.

My Project

We may be a small school, but we have big ideas! Our project will benefit all grade levels and will have a positive impact on each student. Our school-wide grant is a pod of Chromebooks.

Chromebooks would enhance learning with all learners.

. My students use technology every day, but we have a difficult time getting into the computer lab to work on projects and research. Having these Chromebooks in my class would be a huge help and would decrease anxiety with project completion.

Chromebooks would help all students, but would especially help students who learn differently. As a bonus, classes could delve deeper into projects in one sitting having access to computers for times longer than 30 minute blocks.

We hope to teach numerous students life skills including: basic typing, computer fluency, and communicating digitally beyond social media. We want students to have positive experiences with computers and not always associate “technology” with testing. Many of our students live outside of town and internet service is slow or not existent.

Moreover, many families in our attendance area cannot afford the luxuries of internet service or computers. We would like to give our students access to computers, keyboarding, programs, internet, research and technology for all ten months of the school year.
