Welcome to Kindergarten! My old but homey classroom is home to 32 bright eyed beautiful students. Our school is an island of safety and hope in a neighborhood that suffers from crime and gang violence.

Realizing that my students' families cannot afford school supplies, I provide many items for the classroom myself. I shop garage sales and thrift stores to find fabulous items for my classroom. I would love to have something new and exciting to offer this year!

I am asking for two mail box shelves so that each of my students can have their own slot. I am confident that they will be excited to write and receive mail. What a wonderful way to use their new found writing skills to build a strong classroom community!

I appreciate your willingness to help create a special place for learning in an otherwise chaotic world. Your help is means so much to us. Thank You!
