My Students

My students are "thirsty" for learning and high achievement, creative, energetic, dedicated and enthusiastic learners. They love coming to school to become the best versions of themselves.

We strive to not only spend our days reading, writing and becoming mathematicians, but also people who care about our environment and personal health.

My third graders love to read good books, making people feel good, planting seeds and watching them grow, trying new things, exercising, meditating, problem solving and spending time together.

"Adequate hydration may improve cognitive function in children and adolescents." - CDC

Studies have shown that when your brain is functioning on a full reserve of water, you will be able to think faster, be more focused, and experience greater clarity and creativity.

Having access to water at their desks will help us maximize and capitalize on every learning moment that sparks in our classroom. When we have to take water breaks, someone is missing out on vital learning time. We don't want to waste any of our precious time together.
