My Students

I have a phenomenal group of 18 kindergartners at a Title I school. I have a large population of homeless classified students. I have eleven boys and seven girls. Fifteen of these students are English Language Learners. My students deserve the absolute BEST materials in the classroom in all areas of learning to help them grow. They are engaged, eager learners and look forward to coming to school and learning every single day. I want my students to be successful learners every single day. Allowing students to have plenty of resources in the classroom that help them learn is very important to me. Growing and thriving as learners is an amazing thing to witness!

My Project

My students are hardworking little learners and need a little holiday cheer! I am hoping to get a few items to help fill their little bellies and add a little fun to their holiday break from school. I would love to be able to give them some Grandma's Cookies, Rice Krispies Treats, and a few small toys to add a little fun. Several students move from hotel to hotel resulting in losing or having items stolen from them. These holiday treats will add some delight into their lives as they are going through this difficult time. Thank you for considering a donation.
