My Students

In our kindergarten classroom, there is such a mixture of different abilities, interests, and goals! Some of my students are working on letters and sounds, some are working on sight words, and others are learning how to read! My superheroes love to read books, play in centers, and make new friends! I wouldn't have it any other way!

In our classroom, we have a community of learners who work together to reach a common goal: to make it to first grade!

On any day, you will see my superheroes collaborating, communicating, and critically thinking! They love to learn and play together, and I love that they are learning much needed social-emotional skills! It is our goal in kindergarten to teach the whole child!

Our school is a Title I school that serves low income, middle class, and military-connected students. All of our students receive free breakfast and lunch daily. Our school may not have all the resources that we need, but our students have the determination and the drive to be successful no matter where they come from! I love working at my school because our students are special and unique in every way!

My Project

As a single parent myself, I know the hardships that parents can face when buying clothes for their child; especially, when they must buy uniforms for school and play clothes for home. The cost of clothes and shoes can be astronomical, especially when you have multiple children to take care of. Our classroom parents are rock stars! They try their best to see that all their child's needs are met. But sometimes life gets in the way, and we are faced with struggles. I noticed that some of my students were missing school, and so I inquired about their absenteeism. The response was the same: "They do not have proper uniforms to wear."

As their child's teacher, I would like to give these parents additional support by providing them with uniform shirts, pants, skorts, socks, and tights.

Our school is lucky to have a clothes closet; however, they lack the proper sizes that my kinders need. The small sizes are always the first to go. When my child has an accident and I call the front office, I am told to contact the parent because we do not have small enough clothes to fit him. Those parents who are struggling cannot "shop" at our clothes closet because we lack the proper sizes, so this project will help them out tremendously!

I want my parents to know that I support them and that I care about the needs of their children in my classroom. I need my students to be here in the classroom so that they can learn and grow and be ready for first grade! These uniforms will help increase student attendance, and help my students come ready to learn! Thank you so much for your support!
