My Students

We love to learn! These students can't wait to see what school and the world have in store for them, and they are so enthusiastic about learning! They are highly active and very energetic. They love to be hands-on and communicate with one another.

Our classroom is filled with 25 bright, beautiful, and blooming first graders who have a thirst for learning as much as they can each and every day.

Our classroom is located in western Pennsylvania.

Our room feels comfortable, looks bright, and has constant movement. It is just the way we like it! It is an environment that welcomes all children, and they love being here! I love it, too!

My Project

I am requesting basic supplies such as pencils, glue, scissors, crayons, erasers, and more because I want my first graders to have everything they need to start off the school year in my first grade classroom. I know that this is a time when many families may be struggling financially and so I want to make sure I provide my incoming first graders with all the supplies they need. I know how exciting it is for first graders when they get new supplies, so I can only imagine the joy on their sweet faces.

We do so many creative projects in first grade and I am confident that if this project gets funded, my firsties will have everything they need and be excited to start school!

This project is also requesting bags so that I can place all of the supplies in them and they will be ready to go for my fantastic firsties!
