My Students

Our school is a great K-5 neighborhood school in Northeast Portland. This lovely center of education is filled with students from many cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds. When you enter our classroom, you'll find that we are a strong classroom community. We build that community through listening to one another in our morning meetings and sharing our appreciation with classmates throughout the day. The students in our class have a wide range of skills that can benefit from your donations of educational materials. Our classroom has 19 students eager to expand their literacy and tech skills. Please consider helping us reach our goals!

My Project

Our class needs educational materials to meet the demands of our ever changing curriculum. Students, even in third grade, need materials that help them prepare to excel in standardized testing situations. Fortunately most of those skills are also useful in the classroom and life, so the materials listed in this fundraiser are meant to meet the goal. My students will get additional practice in a range of subjects and, hopefully, improve their ability to think critically, take on challenges, and feel capable. Thanks to all of you for supporting the future by helping our students in this Portland area classroom.
