My Students

My school is 85% free or reduced lunch. We are a charter school in Saint Paul, and I have Hmong, Karen, and African American students in my classroom. They are sweet, energetic kids with a passion for school!

My students are some of the most thoughtful and kind children I have ever met.

They come to school excited to learn every day, and have such open hearts for others. I want to provide them with the best possible stepping stones for their future.

My Project

Please help our class to have basic supplies that kids need to learn!

By helping us to obtain a great pencil sharpener, crayons, and clipboards, my students will be able to work more effectively throughout our day.

They will be able to move around the classroom by using the clipboards as a writing surface.

They will be able to sharpen their pencils and then get right back to work, rather than consistently having problems with pencils that don't get quite sharp enough. They will be able to color with new, sharp crayons, which is one of their favorite activities! Thank you for your support!
