My Students

Every morning, students are eager and excited to be entering our school building. We have many important opportunities and classes for students to enjoy. We would love the chance to obtain basic supplies for the classroom.

They are firm believers that hard work is essential to their success and are willing to do what it takes.

They are lucky to be in a school that stresses the importance of getting a good education and also focuses on life skills. We are believers that all students can achieve their goals.

My Project

The addition of a classroom Roomba robot vacuum, wipes, paper towels, and tissues will help the students in countless new ways. Having access to basic cleaning supplies will help students clean up after we are done with our projects. It will also keep our classroom cleaner. We are always trying to find ways to keep our classroom tidier and these supplies will help us achieve that goal.

The addition of the hand vacuum will help us clean up after we are done with classroom projects.

Just last week, we finished our propaganda poster and we left a real mess in the classroom. The hand vacuum would have helped us clean up much quicker and help make our classroom tidier.
