My Students

My students are hardworking individuals, and they constantly want to please. They deserve to have the opportunity to receive all the help that is available to them. They come from a rough neighborhood surrounded by high poverty and crime. Despite their hardships, they rarely miss a day of school.

My students come from low-income households, and they don't have much at home to offer to the school when it comes to supplies.

Many times, they come to school hungry and dirty. We provide free breakfast and lunch to all children. What they do have to provide are big hearts and brains ready to be filled with new and exciting information.

My Project

My students are in need of some important items for our new unit. We are in need of some gardening tools and some seeds. We have begun a big unit on pollination and it requires students to plant, examine plants and flowers, and use seeds. I would like my students to have the necessary items they need for their education. We are also short on place value discs for our new adoption in math. I want every student to have their own manipulatives to use for adding and subtracting numbers. We also can use some pretzels and fruit snacks for a class snack while doing our work quietly. Please help us if you can so my students can have these items. Thank you!
