My Students

Our students are an amazing group of young minds, each looking to us to give them the tools needed to achieve their dreams. We are a Title I school, where at least 95% receive free and reduced lunch. Our students have a budding enthusiasm to explore the world around them. They love to explore through hands on learning, escape to exciting adventures in a book, and share their thoughts through writing.

Despite life's challenges they strive each day to work hard and exceed our expectations.

They walk in each day eager to learn and so that they can be successful.

My Project

TIME magazines will allow our students experiences outside the classroom that they may not experience otherwise. The world has so much to offer that many of our students might not ever get to take advantage of.

TIME magazines will expose them to topics and information that will open doors in their young minds.

It will spur their curiosity to dive deeper through research and collaboration. Through TIME magazine my students will have the ability to stay up to date on current issues that impact the world around them. This resource will not only grow them as scientists and historians, but it will also grow them as citizens of the world.
