My Students

Our school opened its doors for the 2019-2020 school year on Monday, August 12th, 2019. My new first graders burst through the door with unbridled enthusiasm. I quickly learned they are a spirited and enthusiastic group that have a passion for learning!

My Firsties have a voracious appetite for learning!

They are eager and curious and enjoy hands on learning. They love to collaborate and teamwork is their strength. I absolutely love teaching this wonderful group of students! They make each day an adventure!

My Project

If my project is fully funded my students will have access to more flexible seating options in the classroom which will help them with their unique learning styles!

These items will also start our school year (in the fall) off with an exciting start!

With distance learning we were not able to return to the last 9 weeks of school and adding these items to the classroom will be just the pick me up that my future first graders will need! Thank you so much to those who have donated!
