My Students

Thank you for checking out our DonorsChoose.org page! We are grateful that you're here and would love to tell you more about us.

The 3rd graders in our classroom are an amazing group of kids.

They are kind, generous, and eager to learn everything that they can! These kids make the most of what they have. They are inventive, creative, and always ready to work together to learn. Together, we can give them learning tools that every kid deserves!

My Project

With some fun new pens, writing time will be much more fun! My students will love using these fancy pens to create their own stories and writing.

This year we are learning cursive!

The students are very excited to learn their signatures and how to write "like grown-ups", as one student said. These special cursive pens will help motivate us when it gets tough!

The tissues and hand sanitizer are important - our germs are already spreading and we are already catching colds! This way, students will be comfortable in the classroom even if they have the sniffles. This will help our room in a big way!
