My Students

I am excited about my students starting a new school year. I want them to have as many positive experiences as possible. They attend a Title I school in our city. Our school serves preschool to fifth-grade students. My students are thinkers, leaders, and change-makers. Ninety-nine percent of our students qualify for the federal lunch program. My students come from hardworking families who support their education.

My students are 24 wonderful kindergarten students who are learning foundational skills and are very motivated.

They love to be read to and are excited to learn everything they can. They are curious about the world around them, and I want them to thrive!

My Project

My students are learning to form their letters, and they need triangular pencils. The pencils are very effective for proper hand grip and helping students form their letters. My students also need composition books suitable for kindergarten. These composition books are perfect for writing at this age. They have a frame for students to draw and lines for writing.

School supplies are always in need.

I'm also asking for magnetic write and wipe erasers, so each student can use one with their whiteboard. The crayon and owl name plates will be used for their desk box. The peel and stick shimmer shapes will be used for counting during math time. By helping us with these school supplies, you will be helping my students have paper and pencils to use for months.
