My Students

A typical day in my classroom includes very busy five and six year old children. Some of my students come from low-income homes. We are a small Title One school where many of our families qualify for free or reduced-price lunch prices.

My students are very active and love to have hands-on activities during learning.

The faculty and staff at our school work year round to ensure the success of all of our students. It truly takes a village and our school works closely together to help every one of the students in every way possible.

My Project

I am asking for large tuff totes, storage caddies, paper trays, and storage boxes with lids. These materials will make a difference in my students' learning and improve their school lives by keeping our classroom materials organized and easily accessible. When our classroom is messy we can't be successful learners because our materials can't be found quickly or have been lost.

Organization is the foundation to be successful and get our learning in gear.

We have several materials that we are trying our best to keep organized so that it is easy for all students to locate and have success using. We need containers where things can be stored easily and labeled for students to easily find them.
