My Students

My 5th and 6th grade students are special because we live in a rural area where everyone knows everyone and everyone helps one another when there is a need. Our neighborhood is friendly, but many families are struggling to put food on their tables and provide warm homes during our difficult winters. Many of these young students have to step up to the plate and help their parents take care of younger siblings, cook meals, do laundry, and other chores around the house. One 6th grade girl told me that she has been shoveling snow off roofs to help her family make ends meet. For some kids the only time they get to "be a kid" is at school!

Our neighborhood is a potato farming community, where people work hard!

You never will hear them complain even though some kids have it pretty tough. It is a safe community for the most part but many families live in poverty.

Please help me make school a special place to come for all students!

My Project

My students are begging for hands on Science! Now that we have new lab tables and stools we need to get busy being scientists, techies, engineers, and mathematicians! In order to do that we need hands-on kits get engaged in our learning. Some of the kits we would like to have are chemistry kits, a water kit, math reasoning kits, and building kits.

Can you give me a S, T , E, M ?

What's that Spell? Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math! This is a cheer that all kids will want to shout..THANKS FOR GIVING US HANDS-ON STEM IN THE CLASSROOM!
