My Students

Our students here get an amazing education with wonderful teachers and staff. We have great diversity at our school and each one of our students are loved and cared for. Students know that they are loved and cared for, that's how awesome our school is!

Our students are amazing, and we have a great relationship with each and every one of them.

It's because we have a great relationships with them that students know we care about them. Our teachers and staff ensure that each student gets to reach their full potential.

My Project

3rd grade is when students really dive into chapter books and increase dramatically with their reading skills. With more books to add to my library, it will provide students with more books that interest them and make reading more fun!

Students deserve to have the best resources for their learning!

By expanding my classroom library, it will help make a difference in my students' learning. Students will definitely benefit with a more diverse selection of books. Students have different interests and by expanding the diversity of types of books, it will ensure that each student will get a book they will love to read!
