My Students

I have seven kindergarten students and we are on a small, quiet, and somewhat remote Hawaiian island. We are a low-income school which offers free breakfast and lunch to all students. We appreciate any help that we can get in our classroom.

We love to read!

We love to explore really good early childhood literature. We use it to enhance our vocabulary and become better readers and writers. We are constantly trying to improve our classroom library. The books we request will make an excellent addition!

My Project

With your support on this project, we will continue to add quality literature to our classroom library. Our library has grown considerably in the last year with all of the help from our donors. We hope to fill up a little more space on our shelves with these books, which will be read at our Morning Meetings. Our Wish List is filled with Caldecott Award winning books. Please continue to support our Kindergarten students as we promote a love of reading with a strong ELA curriculum and excellent stories to explore.

Thank you again for showing our students that you care!
