My Students

My students are from military families, economically disadvantaged families (over 50% receive free or reduced-price lunch), single-parent families, and grandparents raising grandchildren families. They are a perfect blend of races and backgrounds.

My students are amazing!

My students are everything imaginable! They are creators, readers, scientists, mathematicians, dancers, athletes, chefs, computer geeks, explorers, and more. They are empathetic and sympathetic. They are energetic and excited about life. They are sponges waiting to soak up every bit of information put in front of them!

My Project

When you go to the library, you are able to search through the shelves for the perfect book. Our class library needs help! Through donations from generous friends, our class library has expanded. We need a way to organize and display all of our books.

New shelves would allow my students to easily find books on their level.

The shelves would allow us to conveniently display our books in an organized manner. Our class library is leveled by reading levels and the students know which books they can read. We just need to have room for all of our books to be easily viewed.
