My Students

Our Elementary School is a pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade urban elementary school to 520 students and 44 staff members.

Our student population is composed of 0.6% Native American, 3.1% Asian, 21.3% African American, 46.5% Hispanic, 19.6% Caucasian, 0.8% Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, and 8.1%students with two or more races.

The students at this school speak many languages. The student population is composed of 30.8% English Language Learners, 1.3% gifted and talented (AGATE), and 80.1% students on free or reduced lunch.

27% of the students at our Elementary School are English Language Learners and attend English Language Development (ELD) 40 minutes per day. There are 24 different languages spoke at our Elementary School; the top ELL languages spoken are Spanish, Arabic, Amharic, and French.

There are 11% of our students who receive math and/or reading and writing Special Education services, but a long list of students who need to receive more one-on-one support in order to make growth to their grade level.

My Project

These skills will help students practice navigating features while improving reading skills and test scores. The students will be able to hold a tangible article each week and access additional resources online.

Many students do not have access to technology at home, so receiving this added subscription for our classroom will help pull in recent articles for the students to begin to build background knowledge.

I hope to use the Scholastic subscriptions to connect our reading, writing, science, and social studies resources better than the older resources that we are being provided. I have used Scholastic subscriptions in the past, and the students are extremely excited and engaged to read the new magazine each week.
