My Students

The students and staff in our school are amazing! We are a Title I school, where many students live in low-income housing, hotels, shelters, or with other families. Every student here receives a free breakfast and lunch each day and many receive food to sustain their families over the weekend. Some only speak Spanish or French at home but they all love to come to HRA because they know they are loved and treasured by each of us. We are a school that works very hard to make sure our students and their families are given every chance possible to succeed!

My 5 and 6-year-olds kindergartners are some of the kindest, sweetest kids I have had the privilege of teaching.

They help each other without being asked to do so or to receive praise for doing it! Whether it be a child with special needs who needs help finding the right page or the child with a broken arm who needs help carrying his lunch tray, they are ready to assist. They are also very eager to learn and being the sponges, they are, they are learning very fast! I just want to make sure that they have fun too!

My Project

At our amazing school each and every child receives a free breakfast which is fantastic. The issue is that they eat it in our classroom. With 21 little 5 year olds, there is at least one spill each morning and that is where the paper towels and wet wipes are needed. Each child will use a wipe to clean their eating area. These are safer for the kids than Clorax wipes. The utensils are also for breakfast and picnic lunches in the classroom. They are forever forgetting to grab a fork or spoon when they grab their meal.

Each of the students were given a nice school sweatshirt to wear and keep at school and each week I take all of them home and wash them, and bring them back looking and smelling clean and fresh!

Oh you should see them every Monday bringing them to their face and taking a deep sniff. The laundry detergent and scent boosters are an odd request I know, but this can become expensive.

These are basic supplies that are needed to just make the day run smoothly but also to help keep the room clean and germ free. Thank you for your support!
