Our school consists of students in grades PreK-5th. They come from various backgrounds, cultures, and experiences. We are a very diverse school district with a low socioeconomic background. 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch daily. The common factor for all students is that they love to learn. Their combined unique personalities create a fun, loving, energetic, and inquisitive classroom environment. This project will allow me to introduce money, finances, & nutrition in a fun and hands-on way, perfect for my Kindergarten students.

They are clever, outgoing, and enthusiastic little learners.
