My Students

My students are eager to learn and love our close-knit community. Each kiddo is unique in their learning style, academic strengths and, of course, personality. They enjoy being creative and learning in new and unexpected ways. We love to be moving around and collaborating with one another whenever we can.

Most of all my kiddos enjoy sharing, joking and being around one another.

We're a big, wonderful, goofy family in our school and luckily we surrounded by an equally wonderful community.

My Project

We are in desperate need of sturdy book tubs to house our grade level take home books. Each tub holds valuable books that kids access each day.

We need book tubs to keep our books safe so they are ready to go home with our little readers.

Our current tubs are cracking and are bursting at the seams. Kids are currently having a hard time finding just right books because bins are overstuffed. We would love to have more space to spread out their selections. Due to overcrowding, books are also being destroyed. Lastly, our current tubs are thin and cannot withstand daily use and the weight of all those amazing books!
