My Students

My school district was devastated by an EF-5 tornado when our city was torn in half on May 22nd. We are working on rebuilding our schools so students will return to 21st century classrooms.

Our students are from low-income families.

We have over 75% free and reduced lunches. We also participate in a program where students take home backpacks of food for the weekend because they don't have enough food at home. We supply new shoes for students as well.

My Project

Reading is the foundation of all student learning. We need 1) a small table so students can work on small group activities and projects, 2) Social Studies books to enhance non-fiction reading skills, and 3) book boxes to help students easily locate appropriate reading material.

Thank you for considering my classroom project.

All our teachers are working together, helping each others, and supporting our students. Your assistance in rebuilding our classrooms will help our students return to an environment conducive to learning. We appreciate your assistance!!
