My students are future scientists, technologists, engineers, artists, and mathematicians!
My classroom is made up of diverse English Language Learning fourth graders from around the world in a Title I, STEM school.
Our school is located in an area that includes trailer parks and government funded housing. Many of my students live in small apartments with large, extended families. Many receive support from the clothing bank and community food bank throughout the school year. My students have limited access to reading materials and learning opportunities outside of school. Despite all the challenges my students face they are excited to learn and can't wait to come to school each day.
We have a large school garden and my students work in it daily to keep things growing and looking beautiful! We grow enough fruits and vegetable to make salads three times a year for the whole school to try during lunch! Lots of tools have been donated over the past few years, so now we a place to store them.
At our STEM school we have a large garden area in which we have a greenhouse, vegetable garden and lots of fruit trees. Everyday my student have to lug the gardening equipment out of a closet that is in the school building to work in the garden. It has become very cumbersome, and not very safe for them to carry the tools and supplies we need out to the garden area.
We need a sturdy tool shed that will be located next to our gardening area to house all of our gardening tools and equipment.
This shed will help keep students safe and the tools, equipment and supplies clean and organized. Students will be able to organize and label the equipment so they can easily find what they need.
