Our school is a racially and culturally diverse school serving over seven hundred students in St. Paul, MN. Many of our students receive specialized services. 73% of our students qualify for free or reduced-price lunches. Almost 30% of our students are English Language Learners and about 15% of students receive Special Education services.
We are comprised of two separate schools with different programs: Montessori and Science.
Students have many hands-on opportunities for learning through the Inquiry Zone, a hydroponics lab, an iPad initiative, and outdoor gardening areas. Our students are active, inquisitive children desperately in need of resources due to multiple years of school district budget cuts.
We have a face mask issue! Face masks are required for all students on the bus and at school.
Because we work in an elementary school with young students, many of them forget, break, or lose their masks throughout the day.
The office tries to keep masks in stock but it is difficult when we have students who come to get new masks daily. We have already run out of disposable face masks on 2 occasions, and it is only October! Please help us keep our students safe and healthy so they can stay in school.
These face masks will go to the office and the nurse so they can provide students with masks when they need them. This program will benefit all students and help keep our staff protected as well.
