My Students

Our school supports a growing community of ambitious learners from the South Bronx. Most of the students at this school live in low income housing and/or non-permanent apartments. The previous school was a failing school, before this school opened in 2013. Since opening, a decrease in violent behaviors has put learning at the forefront of the school day.

Students come to school feeling safe, supported, and ready to learn.

Our school serves students in grades K-5 and provides rigorous academics, fantastic teachers, and a safe learning environment. As a result, we are consistently one of the top-performing schools in our district. Our goal is to prepare our students for success in high school and college, and beyond. While our students continue to grow academically, our teachers and students are limited by the resources available.

My Project

My students need a bright organized learning environment. These supplies will help us keep their learning environment engaging and welcoming, to encourage learning throughout the year. Our students deserve an environment that they are proud of and want to be a part of every day. The bulletin board paper, and borders will help create eye popping bulletin boards to display exemplary work throughout the school year.

So many of our students come from chaotic home environments and these classroom supplies will help give them the organized, bright, and inviting classroom they deserve.

We will use the new table, to meet with small groups of students to help guide their learning in a more individualized way. In addition, the hanging folders will be used to create various systems to help the students become more independent, while transitioning from upper elementary to middle school students by June.
