My Students

Science center upgrade!

Our students our in need of a better science center to help them experience a broader horizon.

Our students come from various backgrounds and situations. All of our families are under 100% of the federal poverty guidelines. We have many children being raised by single parents or grandparents. We work hard each day to help the children feel loved, safe and nourished. Many of our students don't have a warm and safe feeling in their home environment so we do our best to give them that while they are in our care each day.

Our program is a federally funded which means we have a limit to our funds. We do plan many different activities throughout the day and year to enrich their minds and bodies, but our fund don't always meet these needs. We try to help ourselves, but that gets to be too much sometimes.

My Project

We chose several magnets to use in our science center. Children are fascinated by how magnets work. The big item we chose is the science discovery chest. This will help our students learn about light, color, magnetism, weather, plant life and much more. It is loaded with many supplies for hands on experiences. We are very excited to use this with our eager students. We also chose a chain reaction kit that we are sure our students will enjoy building with and watching the outcome.

Our students are eager to learn, and deserve nothing but our best efforts at giving them the best to work with.

Our hopes are to bring new life to our classroom with new materials to stretch the minds of our students.
