My Students

If I could describe my students in five words they would be: energetic, loving, inspiring, fearless, and spunky. Many of my students come from low-income families and lack basic necessities such as food, notebooks, pencils and warm clothing for winter.

Despite the many challenges my students face, I want to make school a comfortable and welcoming place for them.

My students are truly unique and deserve the best. Your donation would mean the world to them and would make coming to school a wonderful experience. Thank you so much in advance!

My Project

Every day I have children that come to school lacking appropriate winter clothes. As a result, they may find themselves cold, wet and unable to feel comfortable throughout the school day. We also have many students that do not have many opportunities to play outside at home.

For my students, recess is such a critical part of their day to their development.

Your donation will be going towards snow pants and mittens that will help keep my students warm and dry while playing out at recess. Thank you so much in advance for your generous donation in providing my students with warmth this winter!
