My Students

100% of our students receive free breakfast and 83% of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch. The students come from low-income homes where English is not the primary language. They have diverse backgrounds but limited experiences with fun, extra-curricular activities.

Despite not having a lot of resources at home, our students come to school every day with smiles on their faces and are excited and ready to learn.

They want to explore, learn and play and this primarily happens at school.

My Project

I would like to help our youngest Roadrunners who are 3 and 4 years old, develop a love for learning through the technology that Osmo provides. Osmo uses a hands-on and creative approach to foster early literacy skills, fine motor skills, and help our students understand the world.

Our preschoolers and kindergarteners love to learn through play and what better way than with technology!

There are four different ways to learn the problem-solving and pre-reading skills they need to be successful 21st century learners.

Help our little ones learn to build letters, read and build on their vocabulary and phonics!
