My Students

We are a STEM academy. We are only one of six STEM schools in the state of Texas. We are beginning our new journey of STEM-based projects that will include math, science, engineering, technology, writing, and art.

We are so proud of this honor.

We want to help our students make great choices and to create awesome projects, but we are in need of supplies to create unique and awesome projects that our students can learn by doing. My students love learning by doing. We love building with our hands.

My Project

We go through a lot of paper on a daily basis. My students love to write. We really love colored paper. Help my students receive colored paper for our writing center and our art center. We will be writing word wall words, drawing pictures that go with those words, and making letter books. We will also be doing torn paper art work. We also need gold card stock for special art projects. We will be making Christmas art projects soon, and we really could use the gold card stock.

We really love to write and draw.

Please help us with some of the basic colored paper for our classroom. We really would love it very much and would love going to our art center and our writing center. Thank you so very much for your help.
