My Students

With our school population of almost 800, 100% of the students are living in apartments. Our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with over 85% of our students receiving free lunch. Students have the option to receive free breakfast daily through a program at the school that is open to all students.

Our school has a diverse population of students from various countries who speak a variety of different languages.

Many students will come to our school for the first time and never have learned to speak English.

I have assisted our school in providing a variety of resources such as weekend food bags for students, free eye care and exams, dental screenings, a free food pantry, and a clothing closet.

My Project

My students need to experience real-world applications of what they are learning. Our students will use this sewing machine to make math come alive and explore their creative sides! Sewing projects will be used during Math Learning Center times throughout the day as a way to reinforce fine motor skills, measurement, estimation, fractions, and creative thinking.

Students will be able to use the sewing machine to construct anything that they can design and dream up.

Your generous donation to our project will improve our 3rd grade classroom by providing a way for students to use the math they've learned in a concrete way. This will change our students' lives for the better. They will be able to practically apply math skills and will have fun while they are learning!

Your generous donation to our project will improve our 3rd grade classroom by providing a concrete way for students to use the math they've learned.
