My Students

The students at our school are amazing, resilient young people. Most of them come from lower socioeconomic backgrounds and many of them have faced some type of trauma in their lives already. Despite all that, they are so happy to come to school.

On Thursday, November 8th that all changed.

School had just started, when we were suddenly notified that we needed to evacuate due to a rapidly approaching fire that started in a nearby town. Everyone thought we would evacuate and see each other the next day. We were wrong!

By evening we knew that our town had been wiped out by this catastrophic event and most of our students and teachers had lost their homes. It was literally gone! I am writing this project on behalf of my students, as our school had been destroyed as well. Not a classroom left standing, all books and supplies gone!

We just completed our first week back to school and it was awesome to see these students. We will help each other and be STRONG for one another.

My Project

I have chosen these items to enhance our PE program, provide some storage in our new school since we started in a new room with nothing and build back our STEM units.

Students need activity breaks to be able to learn, hands-on science activities and organization i They will need PE equipment and new recess equipment.

We also need some shelf organizers to keep our room nice and neat. As of now we have very little storage. STEM materials are needed so we can incorporate science, technology, engineering and math into our daily science. 3rd graders love hands-on science so this will provide a way for them to incorporate 21st century skills in their day.

These items are a hodge-podge of important materials a classroom needs to provide an organized, engaged and safe place to learn. Thank you for helping us do that for our third graders.
