My Students

My students are growing up in a high risk area, where most people count them out before they even get started. They live in a neighborhood that is primarily section 8 housing. We are a Title I school, and all of the students receive free breakfast and lunch. Most students come to school without having any school supplies from home. It is my hope to update our classroom, by providing resources my students do not currently have access to. No donation is too small to make an impact for my students.

My students may not come from the best, but they DESERVE the best!

They are eager young minds wanting to learn all that this world has to offer, and it is my mission to help them achieve that.

My Project

My students could really use a printer in our classroom. I am trying to encourage writing throughout our day- not only to help build their writing skills, but also to allow them to express themselves through their writing. We also love to display our work around the classroom and in the hallway for all to admire.

We love to express ourselves, and what better way to do so than through writing!

Having a printer in our classroom can make all the difference, not just for writing, but for research as well. My students will be able to print out their research- how AWESOME would that be!

All the resources I am asking for will help inspire and motivate my students to soar this school year.
