My Students

My students are a great bunch! They love to read. They also love math and science. They are eager to learn new things and gain new experiences. My students live in a rural area in South Carolina. They don't get a lot of time outside of their small town. Our school has been around for many years. Most of our students come from low and middle income class families. Their parents are hard workers and many of them have more than one job. Our school and district has done an excellent job of helping our students get what they need. We don't have a tremendous amount of industry here, but our community does all they can to help our students. I am so proud of our students and all they accomplish!

My Project

I have a lot of books in my room that don't have a place on the book case. The reason is that we have run out of room on our book case! We need two new book cases to go in our reading center. We also need new book tubs to place the books in for easy access for students. I also would love to make my reading center look a little more inviting to my students. We need pillows and chairs for sitting and making it a more comfortable and inviting area for students. If we get these materials, my students will be wanting to go to the reading center every day!
