My Students

The students and staff in our school are amazing! We are a Title I school, where many students live in low-income housing, hotels, shelters, or with other families. Every student here receives free breakfast and lunch each day and many receive food to sustain their families over the weekend. Some only speak Spanish or French at home but they all love to come to our school because they know they are loved and treasured by each of us. We are a school that works very hard to make sure our students and their families are given every chance possible to succeed!

My 5 and 6-year-olds kindergartners are some of the kindest, sweetest kids I have had the privilege of teaching.

They help each other without being asked to do so or to receive praise for doing it! Whether it be a child with special needs who needs help finding the right page or the child with a broken arm who needs help carrying his lunch tray, they are ready to assist. They are also very eager to learn and being the sponges, they are, they are learning very fast! I just want to make sure that they have fun too!

My Project

I am requesting 21 Seat Sacks for my 21 amazing students! On any given day, my students will use their writing folder, a Sight Word Notebook, a Red Word folder, and a Math activity book. Besides the folders, they have pencil pouches and journals! Right now these materials are either in their small cubby or a labeled basket.

These Seat Sacks will provide a place right at their tables to hold all of these things and more!

They are sturdy, colorful and large enough to hold the items they need. Learning how to be organized is crucial at any age but starting in kindergarten gives them a head start. This will also give them more time to learn instead of retrieving and returning materials all day.

I used these at my previous school and love this brand! Thank you for helping me help my kiddos!
