My Students

My students attend an elementary school in Kensington. These children live in a rough, crime-ridden neighborhood. One hundred percent of the students at my school receive free breakfast and lunch every day. Despite all of this, they come to school every day still eager to learn. Many of our parents struggle to purchase the school supplies their children need for school. I wish to make the stressful supply-buying time for families easier by having supplies in my classroom for students to be able to use daily.

My Project

One of the greatest things about my students, they love to read! There is always a line to the newest books in our library, and I love to be able to get them the newest books. However, I need help providing them with more supplies. This project is all about expanding their love of literature!

My students are the most engaged in reading when they are able to get comfy and stretch out.

We have brand new library books in our library, just no library area to read them. The book bins will help to organize our class sets, and other books, for easy access. The rug will give my students a comfy place to read. Our library is growing, we are running out of space. The bookshelf requested would really be a wonderful addition to our library!
