My Students

This is my 4th year in a row teaching the same group of kind-hearted students; I am blessed to say that I taught this energetic class in kindergarten, grade 1, grade 2, and now grade 3. Looping has been a wonderful way to build our caring classroom community.

There is a lot of love; just not always enough supplies in the form of snacks.

Our close-knit classroom family is my 2nd family. These kiddos are kind, sincere, trusting, loving, and eager to learn and grow. We all work together to make our classroom our 2nd home.

My Project

Due to Covid-19, our classroom snacks must be served in individually wrapped packages this school year.

This school policy Is absolutely understandable and it is doable; it does however, put a dent in our classroom snack budget.

Individually packaged snacks are more pricey than the snacks we have been able to previously purchase in bulk; we would like to be able to continue our practice of generously fueling both our mind ...and our body.

We have a classroom goal to keep our snack cupboard stocked with fuel for learning; your support is sincerely appreciated by all of our learners.
