Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

All students are special, hands down. My students, however, come from all different walks of life, from severe poverty to middle or even high class households.

Regardless of their backgrounds, the blending is incredible and I give credit to their personalities for that.

It is never a dull moment with my students and before long, most of them look up to me as another parent and I consider them like my children.

Working together, they have astonishing capabilities!

My Project

A laminator in the classroom will make a huge difference in the fact that my students' work will not get messed up and need replacing. From wall posters, game cards/pieces, and individual note cards, we have a lot that needs to be kept in good condition. A laminator will help my class keep those things in good condition. I am also asking for sports equipment (footballs, basketballs, and soccer balls). My kids, along with the other students in the school, are held to high expectations and work hard to meet them. They deserve fun stuff to stay active and have fun for their 15 minute recess. The balls they currently have are popped and do not hold air well. Seeing students try to dribble with deflated balls is so upsetting. They deserve to be kids and have a little fun in their day of hard work, and keeping them active is always a great thing!
