My Students

My first graders are a smart and energetic group of kids who have big dreams and the drive to make them come true! Each one of them comes to school each day with excitement and a desire to gain knowledge despite their poverty and socioeconomic issues.

The students at my school are racially diverse, and many face the added challenge of being English language learners.

They are an awesome group of kids who deserve to learn in a comfortable, resource-filled environment!

My Project

My students need individual supplies for hybrid and remote learning! In a few weeks we will return to our classrooms and when we do students will not be able to share crayons, glue or scissors. Some of my students are learning from home and are running out of basic supplies. These types of materials are vital to developing a 6-year-old's fine motor skills.

Having individual materials as well as masks and hand sanitizer will help to keep my students safe and learning when they return to school!

Please help my students and families get the supplies they need to be successful this year!
