We are a community of learners dedicated to academic excellence. While our elementary school is located in an inner city, poverty-stricken neighborhood, with a high rate of crime and devoid of many resources, this has not deterred our hard-working students from attaining academic excellence. They are determined to succeed.
My twenty-five sixth-grade students are motivated by constant reminders that education is their key to success, not just at school, but at home and within their community.
They have the abilities and potentials to be successful in their future educational careers - and in life. Their current circumstances do not define nor determine who they can be, or what they can achieve!
Our students are grateful for all help!
Our school is hosting a school-wide family event called, “A Celebration of Writing” to end this academic year. Our 75 sixth grade students are at the end of the elementary school careers and will be promoted to middle school next month.
Their contribution to “A Celebration of Writing” is their biggest undertaking as writers thus far.
They are penning their own books! The genres they’ve chosen range from fiction to poetry to how-to manuals and more. In order to make this an authentic experience and to celebrate their hard work, I’d like to publish their writing pieces professionally using a bookbinding machine.
