Help me give my students 20 backpacks for homeless adults in our community.
Our school is a public Montessori school in Alaska. Our teaching philosophy believes in following the child. We strive to create a learning environment that is prepared and centered around all of our children's interests. It is our job to help spark curiosity within our students so that they may learn to love learning. Our goal is to help mold each of our children to be life-long learners.
Our students are extraordinary because they are not afraid to be creative, to be curious, to question the world around them, to care for one another, to stand up for themselves and their peers, or to push themselves beyond their frustrations.
Due to our school being Montessori, we spend three full school years together. We have our kids from first through third grade. We have more than a teacher-student relationship; our classes become a family.
Our school serves many military families. We understand what it takes to nurture the academic and social emotional needs of these students and families during deployment and all transitions they may experience. Our philosophy allows for military students to quickly adjust to our learning style and gives them the opportunity to explore the world around them.
For this project we are requesting 20 backpacks for our community service activity this school year. Our class has already accumulated enough balaclavas, socks, hats, gloves, emergency blankets, snacks, hand-warmers, and cough drops for 20 adults. Now we are hoping to be able to provide 20 backpacks so that they may carry their personal items around easily.
Our goal is to provide a little relief, comfort, and warmth during the cold Alaska winter months.
We cannot imagine what life is like for people on the streets of Alaska during this time of the year. Through this project, my students are learning to be more aware and grateful for what they have in their own lives while also learning to be compassionate and involved in their local community.
