My Students

Our school is a high performing Title I School with a diverse population of students! As a Title I school, over 60% of our students qualify for free or reduced lunch.

Our school is uniquely equipped to meet the needs of all students.

Our special programs make it possible for all student to be successful. We are an English Language Magnet. Currently, we service English Learners from all over the world. Many of those students are refugees from countries in crisis. We also have multiple programs service our students in Special Education, including Positive Behavior Supports (PBI) that supports students with behavioral challenges.

My Project

Integrating STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) into elementary classrooms is a great way to encourage kids to problem solve, collaborate, create, test ideas, and build with their hands.

Elementary school, a time when kids are naturally curious, is the perfect time to introduce STEM to students.

By using simple items like LEGO bricks, play dough, pattern blocks, toothpicks, and Dixie cups, students will be able to think, innovate, prototype, and research.

The materials in these STEM bins will allow students to become inventors. They will build structures while being in engaged in creative and complex tasks, all while having a good time.
