My Students

Our school is Title I. This provides our students with many opportunities but we still need your help. In order for our students to succeed, we need supplies and support that our school cannot afford.

Our students are beyond special.

They are intelligent, caring and funny. They will make you laugh with their silliness. They will make you cry with their sweetness. As educators, it is our job to advocate for these wonderful students and one way of doing so is by creating appropriate materials based on student needs.

My Project

Back to school is a fun and exciting time for students, teachers and parents. As students and parents work to get back into a school routine, the added stress of trying to buy materials for their students class can be too much. We're asking for help with these materials so that we can start school successfully on the very first day by having all the materials we need!

Construction paper, cardstock, lamination, binders and velcro dots are essentials in our classroom to help us adapt and modify learning to meet each and every student at their ability level.

Helping our students have a healthy learning environment is also necessary for success, therefore, we need tissues, cleaning wipes and hand sanitizer. The other materials are needed for various reasons that help our days run as smoothly as possible.
