My Students

Who doesn't love knowing current information? My students do too! They love learning about things going on in the world that affect them.

My fantastic students are eager learners who want to succeed at school.

Our Title One school has some challenges, and current information from around the world isn't easily accessed by my students. I would love to offer them the opportunity to read about events in the world.

My Project

Some students come from homes where conditions are not ideal, and those students need to be encouraged and exposed to positive ideas each day. Time For Kids exposes children to real issues. These weekly magazines give our class opportunities to have conversations about life and how events in our daily life impact us. These magazines can be a positive influence on a child, as well as conversation starters for a more positive future.

By funding this project, you are molding students' minds with current factual information and creating a positive change in our society.

Here are 4 reasons: 1. Students can see current events that impact our daily lives. 2. Students can engage in meaningful conversation to positively impact our community. 3. These magazine can spark interest in our students and create a local project to help others. 4. Creating students who are aware of community issues can help raise awareness with others.
