My Students

Our students are ages 4-11, in grades Pre-K through 5th. We value education very highly here. The students in our school are thirsty for learning and come to our school from literally around the neighborhood and around the city, some from around the world. We have a highly diverse population, encompassing students whose families have immigrated from countries such as China, Pakistan, Israel, Russia, Haiti, and Trinidad, just to name a few. We also have students on all ability levels from gifted and talented to those with special learning needs, and everything in between.

As the school's Enrichment Specialist, it is my pleasure to teach every single student.

Ours is a school with extremely high standards that go beyond that of a typical city school. In order to keep our rigorous programs going, we do need certain supplies, equipment, and consumable items, and we are grateful to have DonorsChoose.org (and all the amazing donors) to help keep us moving at the level/pace that we do. As a non-Title I school, we miss out on certain funding opportunities that other neighboring schools receive. We have to find resourceful ways to make up for this gap.

My Project

Many of my students have joined the School Newspaper Club. There are 18 eager students from grades 3, 4, and 5 who can't wait to interview, photograph, write, edit and design. It's their first school newspaper experience, so we are all very excited to share their hard work with their families, in our printed edition. I'd like to make this as real as possible for all of our community members.

My vision is to update our technology, a few devices at a time.

I am requesting three new Chromebooks, so that all the students who work in the Library/Media center, as well as the newspaper club students, will be able to research, type and print with ease. An added benefit will be for parents and families, who will be invited to use the devices to access our online catalog during our weekly dedicated parent involvement time.
