My Students

I am a kindergarten teacher at a school where over 87% of the students are qualified for the free and reduced lunch program. The enthusiasm of the students for learning is what makes teaching them so enjoyable. They come to me with very limited academic vocabulary exposure and has to work extra hard to learn the materials. The most awesome thing is that they don't let their obstacles stand on their way of learning. They love coming to school and try their best to make every day count.

The majority of my students come from low income families and struggles with the bear necessities.

Statistically, most of them are at the highest risk of dropping out in middle school and not graduate high school. My students are eager to learn and providing with a formal kindergarten graduation has always been my dream.

My Project

I am requesting caps and gowns for my kindergarten students to wear at "End of Year" graduation. Dropout rate is very high in our community and graduating kindergarten is the only memory for some of our students.

Teachers at my school usually buy nice outfit to put on some students at graduation because they wear the same clothes they had on the last couple of days to their graduation.

Of course, some students look very sharp but it is depressing to see the ones that can be seen with worn out or dirty clothes.

Providing the reusable caps and gowns for students to wear year every year will eliminate the burdens of some students having to either change at school or teacher having to buy the extra clothes. Our parents cannot afford to buy caps and gowns and teachers have been putting their money into buying disposable cap for them. This projects will eliminate all that for years to come.
