My Students

Welcome to our school! We are a Title I elementary school in a low-income urban neighborhood, educating students from Kindergarten through 5th Grade. Eighty-six percent of our students receive free or reduced rate lunch, and 100% receive free breakfast daily.

Our children may not have much, but they are kind, inquisitive, and love to learn.

The school is the heart of the community, and our library is the heart of the school. As the librarian, I do my best to fill my students' lives with quality books, the joy of reading, and tools for learning.

My Project

In our library, we use books, technology, and printed materials to explore our world. Students synthesize information from multiple sources and create projects showing what they have discovered. One of my favorite sources allows me to print articles on contemporary issues at different reading levels, so all students can participate in research regardless of their abilities.

Our eight-year-old printer recently stopped working, and I can no longer print these much-needed materials.

I am requesting a similar color laser printer and two sets of toner so I can continue to provide my students with up-to-date materials for our investigations into our world.

Donors like you make a difference in my students' lives. Thank you for contributing to classrooms through Donors Choose!
