My Students

My children are imaginative and fun-loving kids. They come from low-income households and have not had much experience with the world outside their small community. Not only have we been affected by the Covid-19 but we were also affected by Hurricane Harvey and flooded by Imelda.

Many of my children don't have the ability to learn online.

Several of my children are without any type of technology to help with remote learning. Despite the hardships they are facing with school being closed, they are eager learners.

My Project

Please help me give my children technology for home and distance learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Children are not able to leave their homes due to the quarantine. My children need tablets in order to continue with Waterford and IStation in order to be Kindergarten Ready! My children are so excited about learning and they need to be able to excel through the use of technology! Continuing with the programs that we have been using at school will ensure a successful year and help them be ready to enter Kindergarten next year.
