My Students

Our students range from K through fifth grade. Our students are like our own children. We will do anything to keep them safe from harm. Unfortunately, in today’s society, we need to also think about their safety should an intruder come into their safe zone! We want our kiddos to feel safe at all times. We want our parents to feel comfort in dropping their children off at school and at their bus stop each day. Let me just tell you what wonderful kids we have. At least one-fourth of our fifth graders cry the last day of school; the reason being they’re leaving all the great Teachers at PES and heading to middle school. You see, we all love these kiddos and want to help protect them!

My Project

Our students range from Kindergarten through fifth grade.

All of our classrooms in our school have doors with windows.

My goal is to have every classroom be equipped with a strong doorstop. Our students are like our own children. We will do anything to keep them safe from harm. Unfortunately, in today’s society, we need to also think about their safety should an intruder come into their safe zone! We want our kiddos to feel safe at all times. We want our parents to feel comfort in dropping their children off at school and at their bus stop each day. I’ve recently had a project funded for my Reading Resource Classroom. I’m now requesting your help in funding for my entire elementary school. We all love our kiddos and want to keep them safe!

By adding these security bars to our classroom doors, it will help to keep our students safe from any intruders. We all love our kids at PES! We will do anything to protect them! Unfortunately, these security bars are a necessity in today’s society. Our goal at PES is to give our students a safe environment for them to learn. We don’t want our students worrying each day whether or not they’ll be safe. We want our school to remain a happy place for them to succeed. All the teachers at our school love and protect our kiddos!
