My Students

We are a Title I at-risk school with 100% free breakfast and lunch. In addition to the free breakfast and lunch, we also provide a snack of fresh fruits and vegetables and dinner for over 300 of our students. For many of our students, this is the only substantial food that they will receive.

Many of our students are English Language Learners and do not speak English at home.

Our students are very bright but don't have the resources to always do all that they are capable of in the classroom.

My Project

This project will provide all of my students the opportunity to practice science safely. Students in Kinder thru Fifth grade will have many opportunities to explore the concepts in all science domains.

In order for the students to learn about safety, they need gloves, aprons, and goggles.

Students will be using the gloves whenever they have materials to work with that may cause them to dirty their hands. Goggles will be used when working with liquids and/or mixing materials for projects and experiments. When students are doing any projects or experiments they will need to keep their clothing clean with the use of the aprons. I am also in need of a lab coat for myself so that my clothing stays clean and so that I have pockets to keep small supplies on hand so they are easily accessible.
