My Students

Our school is home to four kindergarten classrooms, two 4K classrooms, and an early childhood class. We may not be your typical elementary school, but what we lack in size we make up for in drive and passion for our students!

We are a school that is dedicated to providing our students with all the tools and materials they need to be successful in their learning.

We are devoted to growing our student's academics, social-emotional learning, and love of learning.

My Project

These materials will provide our students with safety measures and the sensory tools necessary to help them learn how to use their regulation skills. The regulation skills are essential to each students learning.

I am requesting a folding gym mat, sensory fidget toys, and sensory brushes.

These materials will be essential for the effectiveness of our sensory regulation room and for the therapy sessions that occur there.

The sensory toys will give students different options for their regulation and the brushes give students gentle and soothing regulation input. The mat will cover the climbing rocks to keep students safe while they are not in use, they will then provide additional floor padding when they are being used.
