My Students

These second graders come from various backgrounds. Some of the parents are in the Air Force, some work at a local casino, Chevron, or the local shipyard. 55.72% of our district students receive free or reduced-price​ lunch. Our school serves students K-3. We also have a developmentally disabled preschool.

My second graders are eager to learn and explore!

We provide rigorous academics and try to instill good character choices. Most of the parents are very involved with things at our school. I am proud to be a part of this fine school!

My Project

My second grade students love art! They love to color, paint, and draw. They love to paint and color their spelling and sight words. They love to draw and color the settings and characters of a story. Art motivates them to learn new information. I have set up an art table in our classroom, but we need stools to help finish the art center. These stools will be used daily in our class art center. The stools are sturdy and will last several years to come. These stools will give the kids a safe place to sit, and I won't have to worry about our current stools breaking. Please help give my kids a safe place to sit while working on art!
