My class is piloting a new all day preschool program aimed to help lower the achievement gap, prepare students for kindergarten and combat challenges they may face with ACE scores. The students in my class are simply AMAZING! They have faced many challenges in their lives but still manage to come to school with smiles on their faces every single day. They have taught me how to persevere through some of life's greatest challenges, and they are only 4 years old!
Each and every student is so excited to be at school every day and can't wait to try all the fun activities planned.
It has been such a joy watching them learn and grow. They truly are an inspiration, and I am so lucky to be their teacher.
Part of our school day is a mandatory outside time, even if the weather is freezing! Most of our families have difficulty purchasing warm clothes for their children. It breaks my heart to see students shivering on the playground. Being warm will allow my students to simply play and be kids instead of thinking about how cold they are.
Providing snow pants, mittens and hats for each student in my class will take that burden off of their families' shoulders, and it will also help keep my young students warm.
As the days continue to get colder, please have a warm heart and help my students warm theirs.
