We are a STEM-based charter school with 74% free or reduced-price lunches. Recently, we were also impacted by Hurricane Irma which caused roof damage to many of our classrooms as well as my students' homes. Many of my students' families were out of work for more than two weeks which has also put a big strain on them financially.
I have an amazing group of third graders who are inquisitive and driven to learn everything they can to achieve their goals and dreams.
Our students come from a diverse socioeconomic background all with different perspectives and experiences. When they enter the classroom each morning, they are leaders ready to create solutions to the challenges their peers face.
They are dreamers, thinkers, talkers, and questioners. They are mini inspirations to themselves and others around them, even if they don't know it yet. They are budding ambassadors, world travelers, scientists, entrepreneurs, and teachers. They are our future!
We are at the half way point of the school year and this is the time where there are very little pencils, crayons etc. to go around. My students need pencils, crayons, sharpeners, tape, erasers and staplers to help them complete their daily activities and lessons. We also need printer ink to continue to send letters home and to print pictures for our classroom bulletin boards. The paper plates are for crafts, projects, and classroom treats and the batteries are for the students learning games and the classroom radio. Finally, the two tables will allow for students flexible seating opportunities during small groups and centers.
My students need resources to help them finish out the school year strong.
