My students need jackets to keep warm and cozy in the winter.

My Students

My students enter first grade with much excitement and enthusiasm. Over 75% of them are English language learners from low-income families, and 100% of students receive free and reduced-price lunches. Their parents have the highest expectations for their children to excel in school and encourage them to do well, but many lack the time or skills to personally help them academically. Many students struggle with school because they are also learning to speak English. Others have special needs that make learning more challenging. Because of their backgrounds, many struggle and come to school unprepared.

As their teacher, I must find strategies to motivate them to do their best so they can thrive and succeed.

First grade can be quite challenging as the students must learn concepts from all subject areas including reading, writing, and math. I try my best to ensure each and everyone progresses and ultimately masters all first grade concepts while at the same time infusing the curriculum with fun activities!

My Project

This project focuses on providing jackets for my first graders. Often times during the wintertime, I see my students come to school in a thin sweatshirt or jacket -- clothing that does not keep them warm. When I touch their hands, they are ice cold. My students need winter clothing to keep them warm.

As their teacher, not only do I want to ensure their academic needs are met, but also their basic personal needs.

Having the basics of a nice, warm jacket will go a long way to ensure that my first graders are not cold while walking to and from school. I hope that they will each have these items so that they will be warmer, cozier, and healthier during the winter months. This project will ensure that whenever they go out, they will have the needed essentials to keep their young selves warm.

With your support and generous donations, my students will not be cold. Instead, they will be able to handle any kind of weather while walking to and from school and during recess time. Keeping warm is a basic need that I hope this project will fulfill. Thank you for caring.
