My Students

My students are wonderful children. They come from all socioeconomic levels. Many come from military families. My school is located in Niceville, Florida in Okaloosa County. It services students from Pre-K through fifth grade. We are in a beautiful part of the Florida panhandle in Northwest Florida. We have gorgeous beaches with the whitest sand and it is truly a paradise.

My students are vibrant third graders with a love of learning.

We are an A school because of the hard work and dedication of our faculty and students. I want to give them the necessary tools to have a successful year.

My Project

My students use pencils every day for their Math work. They need a new pencil sharpener to keep their tools sharp. My students will us their privacy shields for testing . This provides them with privacy while testing without distractions.

My students use white boards every day in Math class.

This allows me to use them for quick formative assessments. They use them for partner work and showing me their work. I can easily see who has grasped the concept and who still needs more intervention.

I am requesting a sensory pillow for a special needs student to help them focus in the classroom environment. Your donations will help these eager third graders learn and reach their potential.
