We have 425 exceptionally bright students in our K-5 public school who love reading and learning! Our school thrives off of its diversity. Many of our students are English-language learners (15%) and many are from socio-economically disadvantaged households (43%). We appreciate and respect each other, and we work together as a team. Our teachers and staff try to instill value in our students: honesty, justice, determination, perseverance, consideration, and respect -- for others and one's self. Each week, students visit the library with their respective classes for 30-45 minutes. Students can also visit the library during recess to read, relax, or revel in the many educational/recreational activities offered.
My students need materials to get their STEM/STEAM juices flowing! They love visiting the library to read books and to participate in hands-on, project-based learning, creation, and invention. The library's new MakerSpace program provides students with access to a variety of educational concepts like robotics, physics, coding, electricity, arts and crafts, and more. Unfortunately, we need more high-quality books that showcase the accomplishments of STEM/STEAM superstars and explaining how things actually work. We could also use more building and engineering materials. These items will allow my students to be armed with the critical 21st century skills they need to be the STEM/STEAM superstars of tomorrow. Please support our students. Thank you.
