My Students

My school believes that every child has a "magic" that can share with others. Some may not know their "magic" yet, but we are here to help them find it.

Our school strives to find the leader in all students.

Every child has capabilities, talents, and strengths; sometimes, all it takes is exposure or motivation. The students in my school strive for excellence. They care about one another and work towards helping others.

Curious, enthusiastic, and creative; students at my school are eager to immerse themselves in any kind of challenge.

My Project

The materials I am requesting are a knitting loom and four skeins of yarn for each student. We will meet as a group in the morning two days a week to work on our blankets. The blankets should take about five weeks to complete, which would be right around the holidays. The completed blankets will be displayed at the school for a few days and then as a group we will walk to the senior home and meet with the residents and share our gifts.

The donations to this project will help to improve my students' understanding of the joy of giving back to their community.

Students will have the opportunity to learn from each other and realize that to have a strong community we must remember everyone. I am hoping the students can build connections to the seniors and work on other projects for them and with them.
