My Students

My students are a wonderful group of third graders. They come to school ready and eager to learn. They are bright, curious and love to learn. We are a Title I school and have a high population of low socioeconomic families. Yet, our families love and care very much for their children and want the best education for them. Our students deserve to have every opportunity to be academically successful. They deserve to have updated technological tools like other schools in our area.

My Project

My students need to have updated new laptops in order to do science research and ST math. Classes have changed so dramatically over the last few years. It’s very important for students to have updated laptops. Students in third grade use laptops 50 to 75% of the day. It’s important for my students to have the necessary technological tools to be academically successful. With a new updated laptop, my students will be able to do science research on animal and plant cells, research animals, the solar system and our constellations. We also work on a math app called ST math. All students in our school must use this app 25 minutes per day.
