My Students

Bright, engaged, caring students fill the classroom eager to learn each day. Our school is a Title I school. Students receive free lunches along with breakfast and dinner each day provided by the school. The students live in older houses or apartment buildings. Parent participation is low. Some students have parents that work two jobs to support their families along with some being raised by grandparents or aunts and uncles.

Our students deserve our best.

We hope we give that to them every day!

My Project

The love of reading starts with students being interested in what they are reading. If our library is well organized, children can find what they are looking for so the love of reading can start. Organization is a library is key to helping a child find a book to read. These requested interlocking book bins will help organize our classroom library books so they are easy for students to quickly find and begin reading.

The Happy World carpet will be used to make our classroom library more cozy for children to read in.

Students love a cozy area where they can snuggle up with a book. This also causes they love of reading!
