My Students

I have a group of some of the most eager and brightest kindergarten students around. Despite the challenges they may face in their daily lives, they always come to school with a smile and are ready to learn. For many of my students, this is their first time in a classroom setting. Some of my students face economic challenges, and school provides a safe place for them to learn. Our school provides a free breakfast and a free lunch. Our school is located in an urban neighborhood with some of the brightest students in the city.

My Project

The materials I have requested in this project are the basis supplies we use in kindergarten each day. Items such as glue, crayons, markers and copy paper are not supplied throughout the school year as our school budget is already stretched to its limit. Currently, we are running out! Can you even imagine a kindergarten classroom without these vital supplies. This is what my kindergarten classroom is facing. While these items seem simple, we use them every day. These supplies will insure that my kindergarten students have the necessary tools they need to finish this year strong. What might seem simple is so vital to my classroom.
