My students are diverse, warm, caring, and have the biggest, loving hearts. The students I serve are third-grade elementary level students who have many reasons for needing extra care academically, socially, and emotionally. Ninety-eight percent of the students at our school are at the poverty level. A good portion of my classroom (90% of my students) are minority students, and many of my students also have special and unique learning and behavioral needs.
Our students have so much to overcome, but they are smart, resilient, and just need a little extra support to thrive.
Meeting basic needs first will help them to be able to reach their goals. Together, with your help, we can inspire them to know their worth, conquer all, and make great gains!
We want to teach them that they can make a difference and that we are here to help them do that. One way to teach them is to show them that we care and that we can help make a difference for them by helping to meet their basic needs for experiential learning.
Many of my students do not have what they need to get through the day. It is this time of year when their supplies run out and students do not have what they need each day to learn and to complete their work. It is important for my students to know they are loved and are going to be supported with essential supply items to complete their work.
Students who have supplies are able to complete work and also feel supported in their desire to be successful at school.
The variety of basic supplies will help give students much needed tools to help them to learn and to get through the day.
These amazing kiddos know that they are cared for and that people care enough to help them out by providing basic supplies, such as pencils, markers, dry erase markers and scissors.
With the toughest year ever for students and for teachers, these comfort things like supplies are just so very important to them!
