My Students

Our school serves students in grades kindergarten through eighth and provides rigorous academics, fantastic teachers, and a safe learning environment. As a result, we are consistently one of the top-performing schools in our district.

My students are in the special education program.

They are between the ages of five and seven. They have learning disabilities, behavior disorders, autism, or communicative disorders. They all come from high poverty houses. Many of the students have been in the same room for a couple of years. They know each other well and work very well together.

My Project

My students will be coming back to school soon! It won’t look the same as a typical return to school year. They will be transitioning back and forth from various rooms. They will be wearing masks continuously and will be required to bring their supplies back and forth from homeroom to resource room.These extra masks as well as portable organization carts will help keep everything in place and organized. Carrying books and supplies can get very difficult while wearing a mask at the same time. Thank you in advance for considering a donation to keep my students books and masks in one organized place.
