I teach Academic Intervention Services to students in grades K-5. Our rural elementary school in upstate New York has a student population of 340 students. Students who are at risk of failing the New York State Assessments and students who are having difficulty academically are recommended to receive Academic Intervention Services.
Our students come from diverse economic backgrounds, with a significant number of students who receive free or reduced-price lunch.
All of our students are eager to learn and love coming to school. Our students are independent, hard-working, and compassionate. Our school is much more than a building where learning takes place. For many of our students, our school is where they feel safe, where they obtain nourishment, and where they are loved.
COVID-19 regulations state that each student needs to have their own set of learning tools. For this reason, I am requesting pencil pouches. Each student will have their own pencil pouch and all of their own learning tools will be located in the pouch. These tools include pencils, crayons, glue sticks, scissors, etc. By having their own pencil pouch, students will not be sharing learning tools, and that means there will be less of a chance of them sharing germs. These pencil pouches will help my students to stay healthy this school year. It is only when students are healthy that they can successfully learn.
