My Students

My students come from a school where 100% of the population are from low-income and disadvantaged households. The school, along with our entire school district, qualifies as Title I. Our school is located directly off a major highway in California.

With the support of people from across the globe, we can help educate, communicate, and cooperate with the students in our classroom and school.

Our students seek new and exciting resources to help feed their young minds. School today can have many challenges. With your help, we can make sure they have the materials for success, health, and happiness.

My Project

This wonderful project is requesting a miniature ‘upside down Christmas Tree’ to be used in our Holidays From Around The World Project.

Students will research and study about many different countries, and their culture, traditions, and beliefs during the holidays.

Students will get to help setup, upkeep, and decorate the Diversity Tree with ornaments from all around the world. We will be using our reading, math, and social studies skills to develop an understanding of how other cultures and peoples celebrate during the winter months. There are ornaments representing over a dozen countries and will,help educate my students on the humanities subjects or religion and holidays. Thank you for any donations that you are able to give!
