My Students

My students are ready to experience school from the moment they walk through the door. They are a great group of children. We are a Title 1 school where 100 percent of students receive free breakfast and lunch. Dinner is also served daily for 18 and below.

My students deserve the best that I can give them.

Excitement as the First Graders come into the classroom. I would like to have some special items for the children to use this year. I would like some flexible seating. I would also like the students to have headphones that will work when they are on the computer.

My Project

My students will be engaged as they go to the listening center. They will have a CD player that works and they will be able to hear. The stories that they read will come alive on the CD.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus in reading, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.

I am excited to be able to have the children choose from several different books. They will be able to make their own decisions. Thank you for helping my students be the best that they can be.
