My Students

Our students come from various backgrounds and situations. All of the families that we serve are under 100% of the federal poverty guidelines. Several of our students are being raised by someone other than their birth parents; grandparents, great grandparents, aunts/uncles, etc. Our number one goal in our program is to make each child feel safe and loved while they are in our care. This is so important because so many of our students come from unstable homes and/or unsafe conditions.

We strive to give our students the best environment for learning that we can.

We are a federally funded program and have limited funds to use as we plan different lessons and activities. We want to provide our students with challenging, but fun activities that promote their learning and keep them excited about education. Our students are very resilient and they strive to do their best each and every day that they come to school!

My Project

By adding new dry erase boards to my classroom, my students will be able to do more hands-on writing activities during large group time! The white boards and pocket chart stand will be used across all subject areas.

My students love to learn about bugs and nature so these new science materials will encourage them to be more engaged in class.

We feel that science is a wonderful part of our curriculum and we want to add emphasis to this subject area. My students will enjoy being able to be actively engaged in investigating the different kinds of bugs. My students also will be able to explore how magnets with the new magnet set that we have requested. All of these materials will help my students learn more about the objectives we cover in our curriculum!
