My Students

Take a moment to think about your kindergarten experience. Did you just get a feeling of nostalgia, too? Kindergarten is an amazing and fun time that teaches you the foundations of reading, writing, and math. My students are getting that same experience, but we would love to have resources that will help us stay happy and healthy all year long.

The children I teach are energetic, wonderful, hardworking students.

Some of them come from situations that no one should ever experience. They impress me every day with their awesome attitudes and desire to learn. We are a full-day kindergarten class at a Title I school. Most of our students qualify for the free breakfast and lunch program. The student population is 33% Caucasian, 26% Hispanic, 12% Asian, 11% African American, and 28% other.

My Project

The daily instruction that goes on at our school is rich, and engaging, and will help my students soar to incredible heights. That's why it is so important for my students to be present at school. Research suggests that students who attend school regularly are more likely to achieve at higher levels than students who do not have regular attendance.

It's the beginning of the school year and our school has already faced crippling budget issues that make it nearly impossible to provide resources that will keep our classroom healthy!

This project will help my students stay healthy and focused on their goals by preventing illnesses by sanitizing the classroom with Clorox wipes. My students will also be able to fuel their brain with healthy snacks that will give them the energy they need in order to meet their daily academic goals. The protein-rich Belvita crackers will keep them satiated until lunch, and the fruit cups will give them the nourishment they need to keep their brain alert. This project even extends to the guardians. We know school can be stressful for the family as well. That is why I included coffee. Sometimes guardians just need to come in and vent over a cup of joe. The supplies we are requesting will help maintain a healthy classroom environment for my students, which keeps them learning year-round. Thank you for your consideration.
