My Students

My students come from a variety of backgrounds. They are excited to learn and thrive in our school's safe and caring environment. The school is full of dedicated teachers, staff, families, and students.

We are nearing 500 students, and we are committed to providing a rigorous and engaging environment for each child.

Our community is very supportive, and our school morale is high!

Our students are very interested in learning and being successful! 100% of the students receive free breakfast and lunch. I want to give my first grade students a great start to their long journey of learning!

My Project

One of my students' favorite part of our day is when they are learning at centers. We need some new materials to keep them up and running. My students love to manipulate our magnetic letters to make words and phrases. We need new privacy partitions to test the skills and sounds we learned through out the week. Our old ones are falling apart and barely stand up! We need a file organizer, pencil holder and desk supply-space saver to help keep our supplies in one area so we can keep our centers organized and ready for the next group. This will help save time for learning.
