My Students

My students are from low-income families. Our program is for high-risk families who get free or reduced-price lunch, free snacks, and breakfast paid for by our program. Our goal is to introduce new and exciting materials that everyone can use to grow and learn to be kindergarten ready. They would really benefit from educational tools that have the capability to broaden their world and view, and give them a chance to interact with technology in a way that they could not do so at home!

We have multicultural students, students with unique challenges and students who just need the experience being in a program that has diverse materials because they do not have that at home.

This is the class that is overlooked because it is not technically a grade in school but is highly recommended and needed based on the high demand and expectations for Kindergarten students. Studies have shown that students who attend preschool will do better in 3rd grade and in turn will go on to graduate high school. We do not get much funding but we are needed and that is why I am asking for donations.

My Project

We were just moved to a new building where all of the outdoor playground equipment is too big for our little 4 year olds. We do not have any outdoor items for them to use currently and we are trying to get more exciting equipment than chalk and bubbles.

The stepping stones and hop-along balls that I have asked for will be used for large motor skills and help their balance.

The Let's Get moving activity mats will be fun to play games with.

Please consider helping my students by donating to this project. Thank you for your consideration.
