My Students

Our school is a diverse school. We serve students from all walks of life. Although some of our population is high-risk and the school is located miles away from some students together, we accomplish amazing things every day. My students love to use books and computers to explore all the things that they are curious about. They need and deserve all there is to offer in this world! My project is to help better meet their needs as they move forward in the right direction.

My Project

Help us fill our class treasure box!

These rewards motivate students to think positively and behave well.

We cannot be successful academically if the classroom management part does not run smoothly. Please help our second grader's be successful by making them feel loved and cared for.

I am asking that you fund the classroom treasure box with the following items: mini notebooks, mini toys, bookmarks, coloring books, pencils, fruit snacks and Play-

doh. My students get excited every time they get rewarded with a ticket. They can earn tickets in various ways like turning in homework, meeting their personal goal, helping a classmate, following directions, making good choices, and so on. They cash these tickets in at the end of the week for a special prize from the treasure box! This has helped my kids stay motivated and positive all year long!
