My Students

We are a STEM academy. We are only one of six STEM schools in the state of Texas. We are beginning our new journey of STEM-based projects that will include math, science, engineering, technology, writing, and art.

We are so proud of this honor.

We want to help our students make great choices and to create awesome projects, but we are in need of supplies to create unique and awesome projects that our students can learn by doing. My students love by doing. We love building with our hands. We love learning by doing.

My Project

My project will benefit both prek and kindergarten. We are starting something new at my school this year. We will be using incentives for students to come to school each week. For each student who comes to school all days of the week will get a pull from our treasure box on Friday. This will be done every Friday.

Help us build up our attendance in both prek and kindergarten.

Each classroom will need a treasure box with toys as rewards to be pulled at the end of each week for being at school. Also, I have two other sets of toys as replacement toys as needed for students to pull as prizes run low.

We want students to enjoy coming to school. We want to encourage them to want to come to school. This project will help students to want to come to school please help us reach our goal to help with our incentives.
