My Students

My students at S.E. in Houston, Texas are "What Excellence Looks Like". The 80 students in my classroom qualify for free/reduced lunch and 50% are English Language Learners. The goal at Sanchez is to prepare our students to compete and succeed in the 21st century. Many of the students do not have access to computers, internet and other necessary technology in their homes. Despite some of their disadvantages, students at S.E. performed at the highest levels on the State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR) assessment last year. However, this school year has been a unique one because our scholars experience one of the worst horrific floods caused by hurricane Harvey. Many of our scholars were displaced loosing everything they owned. With these obstacles and challenges our Sanchez Eagles come to school everyday ready learn and take on the world. I am hoping to hear from some generous donors help us rebuild our school. We are as Resilient as our World Series Houston Astros continue to work hard to be the best scholars we can be.

My Project

I want to increase my attendance in my fifth grade level. A technique to improve attendance is by eradicating the number of germs that float around in our learning environment. Germs contribute to many scholar absences and lost learning opportunities.

Scholars are coming to school with runny noses, coughs, headaches, colds and even the epidemic flu, and it's important to stop the spread of germs and keep our classroom healthy.

Clorox Wipes and aerosol spray will help decontaminate and clean all of our surface areas in our classroom. Also, having sufficient Kleenex will enable students to be able to cover and wipe their noses without having to leave the classroom. The glade wax melts will keep our classroom smelling pleasant, that learning will be enjoyable. Once we have created a clean and healthy atmosphere, it will lead to healthier scholars, improved attendance, and a better academic education.

Amazing Bacteria Science Kit is a great resource to educate my scholars about germs, how it is spread, grows, and the result of using these materials to disinfect and eliminate germs.

The snacks will support those scholars that come to school hungry. Sometimes our students have headaches or stomach aches due to hunger therefore, having a snack can resolve that issue. Also, snacks can serve any student who needs that extra support during the instructional day. A child can not learn if their immediate needs are not met.
