My Students

My scholars are the best, and they know it. They are unique individuals with the capability of becoming productive citizens in the future. They work hard for what they believe in, and, when asked to give 100%, they give double that. Many of my families struggle, but even while working hard they still find the time to volunteer around the school and provide support to their scholars. I have scholars who come from single parent households and parents who work double shifts in order to provide.

All of my students are eager to learn and need supplies in our classroom.

We hope you find it in your heart to donate to my wonderful pre-k scholars. Let's help tomorrow's leaders today!

My Project

With all the materials listed, my students will be able to have a space where they can relax and cool down when they are upset. We will use the pillows to create a cozy corner where students can make themselves comfortable. We will also use the sphere to help students use different breathing techniques to cool themselves down. The balls will be used to relax students. Students need an area where they can cool down and with your help we can have a nice area where students can go and calm down. It will be our cozy calm down area.
