My Students

We teach enthusiastic learners who come from diverse backgrounds. We have an abundant amount of students who come from military families and low-income households. Our students are a group of mixed interests, abilities, and goals. They show determination and perseverance through their hard work.

We are a Leader In Me school and our students practice leadership skills through leadership opportunities both in the classroom and school building.

Students are 1 to 1 with technology and practice using it in a variety of ways. These include Google Classroom, Moby Max, Zearn, and online assessments.

My Project

Our students are 1 to 1 with technology and use their devices to take assessments and to complete assignments and activities. They would greatly benefit from classroom headphones to ensure their focus and concentration. Our students love engaging games and activities so the colorful Astrobright paper would help make those activities fun and exciting. We use these games and activities in our whole group lessons, small group instruction, and small group centers. Our students deserve every opportunity to learn in a safe and engaging environment, so please help us provide these materials for our students so that they can be successful.
