My Students

Our students come to us knowing they need help, and they are willing to work hard each day. Over half of our Title I school is comprised of low income families. Our students look forward to coming to school to engage in learning experiences and activities each day with their peers and our staff.

Our staff is strong and creative, making our materials go far while looking for different ways help each learner.

We encourage our students to show their learning in diverse ways and to embrace their independence. We provide choices whenever we can and embrace a school-wide feeling of inclusion and togetherness.

My Project

We're looking to expand our classroom library and provide school wide support in reading across different subjects - especially math! Many of these books provide our students with connecting Math and Reading together, along with developing a sense of community through kindness in reading stories.

We've chosen stories that feature a diverse group of characters, relay the message of math being attainable for everyone, and that kindness is a way to interact with others.

Students can explore these themes in multiple stories - some familiar and others new!

Our students are always excited to received new stories and have increased access to excellent literature. Increasing our libraries will allow more teachers to share these stories with their students and continue to show literature in other subjects. Students will be shown how kindness can assist them throughout the day and is always an answer to grow in our community of learners.
