Do you know what makes our school the best place in the world? Other than the rock star teachers and creative little learners, it's the community that surrounds us. It's our classroom community, our school community and our small little community where we all live and support each other. My students come to school excited to learn about and explore their world every day! Our school is the only elementary school in our small town, so we really are a tight-knit family. That means if our students need something, we work for it. If they make a mistake, they learn and grow from it. And if we can make our learning more meaningful and fun, we do it! Our students come to school excited to learn about and explore their world every day! However, back in August, many of our students and staff were exposed to a world they've never seen. Our community slowly began to disappear under water. Hurricane Harvey impacted many of our lives, but wouldn't know the loss by my kiddos’ bright and shining faces, the perseverance they show, or the kindness and friendship they pour from their hearts!
After a devastating event, such as a flood, support and supplies come heavy at first, but then slowly fade away and it's always much harder to ask for "luxury" items to be donated for replacement, such as iPads, but the Donors Choose community has come through for us! We now have some iPads to enrich our learning! Our kiddos are so excited to get to work with them, but we sure could use some Iris storage drawers to safely store them and VisionTec White Lightening charging cables to keep them charged and ready for use! Thank you for helping to complete our vision with these finishing touches!
