My Students

We have 519 inquisitive learners excited about new information. Our goal is to prepare all students for success in college, career, and community leadership.

Our students all live close to the school.

We do not have any bus riders. Family involvement is critical to student education, and we are very fortunate. It is a source of pride that many families are third-generation students at our elementary school.

My Project

Our neighborhood is full of pride and our Elementary School's alumni are from many generations, including our students' parents and grandparents. Our school is located in a culturally rich neighborhood. Unfortunately, our students do not have the access to books at home that many neighborhoods do.

Inchy's Bookworm Vending Machine will provide our students with the reward of reading and books to take home.

Studies have shown that students with access to books score higher on educational tests. "Inchy’s Bookworm Vending Machine works by rewarding kids for good behavior, good grades, and good attendance." We believe that the combination of vending books and our own reward system, we can bring excitement to reading.
