Hooray! This project is fully funded
I work in a public elementary school, in an area plagued with high poverty and unemployment in North Houston. My students have faced many obstacles the average 50-year-old has never faced. They come to school to learn, despite the lack of stability at home. They are eager mathematicians and soaring scientists. They come from immigrant homes, 100% high risk, where the parents often work two jobs just to make sure that the children have the basic needs for school. My students have a desire to learn and grow. They want to be good role models for their younger siblings. They work hard each day, and they come to school with a positive attitude. I want to make sure that my students have the same opportunities to learn as their peers, who are not facing the same obstacles. In August of 2017, our community was hit with a tragic natural disaster, Hurricane Harvey, and it has been exceptionally hard on our students and their families to get back on their feet.
The technology that I am requesting for my students will help us have a game-changing year! We recently exited our IR-rating and want to now incorporate common household games into learning tools! We are hoping to transform these games not only at school but at home too but we just need your help in getting everything through our door! We are ready to win, we just need your help! The donations to this project will help to improve my students' critical thinking skills, content material, and scholars have fun doing it!
By giving the students the opportunity to use technology for research purposes, we are not only helping their academic learning, but we are also teaching them how to work together, problem-solve, and be life long learners.
HH elementary is determined that ALL students receive the best possible education. Today students, tomorrow world changers. We would love your support!
