My Students

My third-grade students learn in a Title I school near a military base. Many of our students have experienced some type of family transition (single parent home, blended family, divorce/separation, low income, etc). The majority of my school receives a free or reduced-price lunch. The students at my school are all hard workers. They come to school every day, ready to learn.

My third-grade students are a very active bunch and are capable of doing amazing things this year.

My students set goals for themselves, and they achieve them. They are smart, kind, and caring. They work hard as individuals and come together as a team.

My students are eager to learn and love whole group activities that allow them to listen to stories, cooperate with peers and attend to technology lessons. Our community has a high population of military families. We have a supportive community and administration; however, there are fewer funds for classroom resources.

My Project

Our class has been blessed with several boxes of snacks! However, we don't have anywhere to store them. Currently, they are sitting in the original cardboard containers that they were shipped in. Cardboard is dirty, and I would love to be able to store the snacks in clear and easily accessible containers. I would like to use the containers with lids, stacked in the cubby organizer to minimize the germs.

These items will allow me to create a cleaner and healthier environment for my current and future classes.

Our classroom is also requesting a Roomba vacuum that will help us by vacuuming daily after school when it is not in session. Our classroom is very large and the amount of movement and dirt tracked between the room can sometimes be overbearing to keep up with! Especially after recess and snack time. The Ziploc bags will also hold snacks to keep away bugs! Thank you for supporting our classroom!
