My Students

Students at our school are amazing! We are a K-6, charter school in Ohio. Although, three-fourths of our students are from low-income households, our students have great character. They are driven to succeed and overcome their odds. They work independently and together as a community. They know how to be self motivated and also how to be a team player.

Last year, our school officially received the designation of National School of Character.

We are a family of teachers, support staff, and administrators whose main priority is to encourage and educate our students to become the best that they can be.

My Project

We are in need of copy paper for various projects, but most importantly we need copy paper to print take-home books. Fortunately, our school provides us with access to over 2,000 leveled books online, to print for our classes. Unfortunately, each book requires twelve or more pages per student, which adds up to a lot of paper. It is difficult to print the number of books students need, since teachers are only allotted a certain amount of copies per year. Research says that when students read twenty minutes per day, they are exposed to 1.8 million words per year. We want to make that happen by printing books for our students to keep at home and read.

Extra paper will allow us to print books for them to read during their twenty minutes of nightly reading at home.

This paper will help to ensure that students receive quality, educational books on their level, to read and keep at home.
