My Students

Our school is very special, we are a high performing, Title I, Renaissance school. Our school population is about 88% Hispanic, 7% Caucasian, about 3% African American, and about 2% Asian. Most of our students are English language learners. Our high performance is really due to how hard our students' hard work. Their great efforts score enormous gains for our school.

In addition to our hard-working students, we truly have great caring families which allows our school culture to be one of a kind.

Our parents and students value education as much as our teachers do. Together with our families, we make our school a wonderful place for students to learn and teachers to teach!

My Project

Our classroom budget was decreased this year and we are in need of some basic supplies. We need file folders to help stay organized, a new classroom pencil sharpener (our's is on the fritz), and we need lots of glue sticks (student go through these like water). Lastly, we would requesting to have clothespins to be able to display our work around our classroom in an organized way.

My students and I can really use your help in obtaining these much needed supplies.

Please consider this project to help us get through the year! Thank you in advance for your support.
