My Students

My fourth-grade class has 32 students in it. My students are eager to learn, enjoy school and are motivated to succeed. They love to use their imagination and grow as learners. We are a large school with over 1,000 students. We are a Title I school and all the students in my school all receive free breakfast and lunch. Many of the students in my school are English as Second Language learners. We have many different languages spoken in my school. My students come to school with big smiles and are ready to learn and achieve great things!

My Project

My students are in need of some basic supplies to help us have a great year. We need different sized bags to hold our books, notebooks and other materials. This year my students will be moving from room to room for different subjects so it is extra important that they are organized. Having bags and folders to do this will be extremely helpful. My students also need name tags so we can label things so that my students know where to find their notebooks and supplies. It is important for my students to have baggies for their independent books so that they can grab a book and read anytime they would like.

Help us be organized!

My students love to learn and it is important that they are taught skills to help them be organized this year and in the future. Please help for us to have the supplies needed so they can learn these life skills.
