My Students

Our students love to learn and become very motivated with hands-on learning. My students come from a low-income, rural community, yet they continue to strive for improvement. Our school has a high migrant population and all of our students receive free lunch.

My classroom is full of eager learners who find value in learning.

They face daily life challenges at home, so I want to provide the best possible learning experience for them here at school! They come to school happy and ready to learn each and every day.

My Project

My students need school supplies for the remainder of this school year. I am requesting backpacks, pencils, and color crayons to help them be successful this school year. This time of year, students' supplies are starting to break or simply get lost. With this extra supply of materials, students will be given whatever they need to support their learning.

I am requesting school supplies for those students who will come to school without supplies, but also for those students who need additional supplies or supplies replaced.

The pencils will be used daily by students. The glue sticks will be used to add interactive pages in their math notebooks or to complete art projects.

Thank you for supporting my students and my project.
