My Students

Our school proudly represents an international community that speaks many languages and represents many cultures. Our multicultural mosaic gives our school a global perspective with high expectations for academic success. The students are highly motivated; the families of these children expect a guarantee of success. To assure the children's academic success, it is vital to provide only the best resources possible.

Students can only achieve if they have the necessary tools to do so.

The families of our children have sacrificed much to be in this country and the children hope to fulfill their families' dreams for success. For that reason, we try to bring the best resources to our students in the hopes of realizing high expectations that will lay a foundation for future opportunities.

My Project

My students will learn the art of sewing by making their very own pillows and create stuffed pizza slices and monster pillows.

One of the best skills a child can learn is the skill of sewing.

It is a lifelong skill that I believe all children need to learn. Students will use the felt to create the structure of the pillow, the stuffing to stuff the pillows and the needles will help create designs. All the supplies that I have asked for will help complete this project. My students will be super excited to embark on this journey in the world of fiber arts!
