My Students

My students reside in a low income, poverty-stricken neighborhood where their families face many challenges daily. For many of them, my class is their first experience in school and I want to expose them to learning in a clean and safe environment. Many come from one parent families. Some of them have a high school diploma and have limited job skills. They often have difficulty providing the basic necessities for their child.

I want to provide my students with winter coats so that they can walk to school warmly in the cold weather.

My students are non-traditional unique preschoolers who are eager to learn. They are still adjusting to school. They love to take part in language, cognitive, social/emotional, fine and gross motor activities, as well as adaptive and moral development. All of these domains help in shaping their character and their skills in life. It will also prepare them to be productive citizens in society with the knowledge of building and connecting what they already know as a learner.

My Project

We are requesting heavy winter coats to keep them warm as they walk to school. This project of winter coats will allow my students to come to school daily and will also help their parents meet their immediate basic needs as the weather changes. Many parents do not have the money to purchase winter coats for their child due to financial situations. Non-working single low income parents with a low academic attainment sometimes have difficulty providing for their children. Many have coats that are too little or the zipper doesn't work or is gone.

My goal is for my students to be able to maintain their daily attendance by coming to school dressed for the cold weather wearing their winter coats, ready to learn.

The need for coats is greater because the cold weather permits the students from attending school. With your donation of winter coats, the children will be able to walk to school warmly, ready to learn. It would be greatly appreciated.
