My Students

My students are a wonderful group of children. They love coming to school each and every day. They work hard in all academic areas. They are struggling learners who put forth a tremendous amount of effort to excel.

My students are wonderful and they love to learn!

They try so hard all day long, and have made such amazing improvements this year and would love to continue to make improvements. They look forward to school each and every day and every subject is exciting for them.

My Project

My students need a MacBook air to help with math and science activities.We desperately need a macbook for use in our math and science centers. We would use this macbook for all math and science activities. We would be able to use this macbook for our science and math lessons and activities and we would share it with all of the students.

We would be so thankful if we received this amazing macbook.

Funds are very low in my district so it's extremely difficult to acquire the necessary supplies to help my students become successful.They work so hard all day long and they deserve a laptop. We would be so thankful! There are so many wonderful activities we can do with this amazing laptop! Thank you for taking the time to read through our proposal.
