My Students

Our students work hard every day to be successful in school. We encourage a love for learning in each of our students.

Our students love being creative and having the opportunity to share their creations.

They work to make real world connections by using higher level thinking to show how learning is important in and out of school.

Our students come into the classroom energized to learn. As the words leap off the page, they delve into a world of adventure as we read. They then take those experiences and put their thoughts to paper by making connections with their peers and the outside world. Their love for learning provides a positive environment where success is strived for and achieved. Students at our school are excited about learning!

My Project

I'm requesting binders, binder pockets, and binder tab dividers. With these materials, our students will create binders to hold all of their important materials for the year. They need to be able to organize their materials so nothing gets lost.

We plan on teaching our kids how to organize their work so they can easily find it when we need to reference it later on in the year.

We have a vision that teaching our kids these organizational skills will provide them with a valuable lesson that will help them as they move into the adult world.

Our area was greatly impacted by Hurricane Harvey, and supply funds have been tight for our students. We encouraged them to bring binders this year, but many students were not able to support the costs. Next school year, we are hoping to be able to provide every 9th grade student in our school with a binder they can use throughout their high school career.
