My Students

Our students are very excited about learning. They work hard and follow direction. Although, they are from low socio-economic background, they always come to school with a positive attitude. Therefore as school is coming to an end, we want to afford our student the opportunity to continue to learn during the holidays. Having a back pack ready for school next year will also help to free further financial burdens regarding school materials. We are grateful for any assistance you can provide for us. Thank You.

My Project

Our goal for this project is to help our children to get a head start before the next school year and also to help the families with the supplies they might need for the coming school year. We are excited that this project is available to us. As children are at home during the holidays, they can use these materials to continue to enhance their skills by practicing how to read and write or color different pictures. It will also help with retention of the skills they already learned as the cut with the scissors and practice writing with their or drawing with their crayons in the back pack.
