My Students

100% of the students in my school receive free breakfast and lunch. My school also participate in a fresh fruit program which provides fruit to students 2-3 times per week.

Many students have a disadvantaged home life and school is the only stable place in their young lives.

Many times the problems they carry into school make it hard for them to focus on their education. We try our best as teachers to provide a reliable and stable environment for them!

My Project

In today's fast- paced society student's have a hard time sitting and concentrating for extended periods of time. Research shows that being able to move keeps student's brains engaged. The Bouncy Bands will be added to the students desk which will promote movement throughout the day while students are in their seats working. The bands will also allow for exercise during the cold winter months when students spend much of their time indoors.

Bouncy bands will allow for movement while working on projects in their seats!

This will make a difference in my students lives by promoting gross motor movement throughout the day while working on projects.
