My Students

My students face challenges that others may take for granted each day. Ninety-five percent of our students are on a free or reduced-price lunch program. Many of our students receive food backpacks to go home with them each week.

Our students are so much fun and have amazing personalities.

They enjoy learning and make our jobs exciting. Each day, they are improving their academic ability. We challenge them every day to be the best they can be. I'm blessed to work with these amazing students every day at our school.

My Project

These items would greatly benefit our community by being able to make 20 large fleece blankets that we would donate to the area shelters.

Students would be giving back to the community by making a fleece blanket to help a community member stay warm during the winter months.

A second and fourth grade student would be partnered to design, measure, create, and complete a no-sew fleece blanket to be donated to a member of our community. The fleece material requested would make 20 large blankets that would help keep someone warm.

We want to teach our students the importance of giving back to the community, that does so much for us.
