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 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

My students are by far the best kids on the planet, who love to do little craft projects to make our room a more beautiful place. We will use these supplies to decorate our notebooks and binders. We will use the paper, stickers, and paint to make things beautiful. We will use these supplies to do foldables in math class and even to make posters for our classroom. My students don’t always have access to their own supplies, so a class set would be great. I will also make sure they have access to window markers to decorate our windows appropriately.
