My Students

My students are smart, beautiful, enthusiastic first graders. They come from a variety of cultures, races, and socioeconomic levels. Some of their home languages include English, Spanish, Urdu, Arabic, Cambodian, and more. As a dual language school, all students are learning to read, write, and speak both English and Spanish.

These curious and persevering children are ready to meet any challenges and learn everything possible!

They always want to know more to make the world a better place. Many students come from low income homes and have not been able to access resources and experiences that other children take for granted. This does not stop their drive.

My Project

My students need book boxes to keep their books safe. Students choose books that they are reading and keep them in their book boxes until they are ready for a new book.

Students would love plastic book bins to replace their current flimsy cardboard ones.

The cardboard tears and the boxes become imbalanced and fall over. Students also learn about how to reduce waste and reuse items. Some of the cardboard book boxes don't even last one year and definitely can't be reused. New plastic bins would last for years. Students would have a plastic bin to save their books that would be more colorful, durable, and reduce waste.
