My Students

Our diverse Pre-K students often encounter academic challenges. Ninety-five percent of our students receive free or reduced priced lunches. Some of our students receive a food backpack each weekend.

Our students love to learn and each needs different things to learn in his or her own way.

Every day our students learn more and more. We want to give them what they need to be successful.

We love our students and want them to be world changers. We challenge them to be the best they can be!

My Project

The large easel will allow the students to practice writing and drawing on a large vertical surface, which strengthens both fine and gross motor skills. Using gross motor movements will also help with the fine motor skills needed to correctly hold a pencil, as well as increase spatial awareness.

Collaborating with peers and teachers to create writing pieces leads to powerful learning that is accessible to students on many different levels.

Engaging the students' emerging writing skills in Pre-K builds a strong writing foundation.

The tabletop easel will allow the students to create messages to practice writing letters, words, and names. We will write about students, upcoming events, holidays, and so much more.
