My Students

I have a wonderfully energetic group of third graders. My students love to explore and learn. They are bright young learners with big hearts. My students come into my classroom every morning with bright smiles, excited to learn. They are the greatest group of kids, and I am so blessed to be their teacher.

We need some help!

Our school is in a low-income area and more than a third of my students receive free or reduced-price lunch. In addition, many students in our school speak English as a second language. We have a lot of needs as a school and as a classroom.

My Project

Due to COVID-19, many families have lost their jobs. As we are ending our current school year we are getting lists together for the 2020-2021 school year. We sent in our supply lists to send home to the families and it worries me the amount of stress our families will feel when they need to go shopping.

Help me by providing my class with school supplies next year so these families can focus on getting back on their feet without the stress of school supplies.

My students need basic school supplies such as binders, erasers, pencil pouches, crayons, etc. By providing these supplies, my students will be able to come to school confident and ready to learn. Also, when everyone has the same school supplies it creates less problems. Thank you for helping my 2020-2021 school year start off on the right foot!
