My Students

I have an amazing group of 4th graders. They come into our classrooms every day, eager to learn, ready to take on new and challenging tasks, and excited for what is in store.

My fabulous 4th graders come to school each and every day excited to research topics of interest based on their own uniqueness.

These eager students come from a diverse group of cultural, economic, and academic backgrounds. We work in a class community where most households have two working parents.

My Project

We need your help. We are in the middle of cold and flu season and allergy season is right around the corner. We need materials to keep our classroom clean and our students healthy.

A clean clean classroom will help us keep the cootie monsters away.

When students pass germs to each other or collect them off of surfaces and get sick they don't/can't come to school. The less they come to school the less likely they are to succeed!

We need a vacuum to keep our classroom rug and floor clean and disinfecting wipes to clean off surfaces and tissues to keep germs out of the air!
