My Students

My students attend a Title I school in Pennsylvania, and all receive free or reduced-price lunch and breakfast. They attend a typical inner-city school. Most face serious obstacles before they even walk through​ the doors in the morning. Our goal is to make our school a safe and loving environment.

Our students come from diverse backgrounds and many different countries.

This makes our school pretty special in so many ways. The students all work so hard and are very deserving of this project.

My Project

For a child to be successful, they need the right tools. Simple items like calculators, pens, pencils, and markers can give my students the ability to do the required classwork of taking notes and staying organized. These supplies will be available for any student who needs them. Due to Covid, we cannot share supplies so it is important that we are not passing around pencils and pens. We will stay safe by having our own supplies. They need to write down key ideas in the notebooks so we are not using sheets of paper. Items like stickers will be used to decorate our notebooks and posters.
