My Students

While I have yet to meet my Kindergarten students for the upcoming school year, I know that some will only speak Spanish or French at home and most, if not all, will live below the poverty level. Some will be homeless, living in hotels, with other families, or in shelters. Many will have experienced trauma, have relatives in prison, and/or witnessed violence and gang activity in their homes or neighborhoods.

Every student at our Title I school receives free breakfast and lunch each day and many receive food to sustain their families over the weekend.

Second Harvest Food Bank comes to our school once a month and provides food for every family at our school! Staff at our school will volunteer for many after-school activities to assist our students. We as a school work very hard to make sure our students and their families are given every chance possible to succeed!

Kindergarten kiddos are so fun to teach! They are always eager to learn and being the sponges they are, they learn very fast! I just want to make sure that they have fun, too.

My Project

Have you ever taken your 20 students along with hundreds of other kids on a field trip to say a pumpkin patch or a museum and all have on the same uniform? Yikes they all look alike! Trying to wrangle your 20 is hard enough without the identical uniforms.

So I want to make sure my students stand out, as they should since they are outstanding kids!

I am requesting t-shirts, a tie dye kit, and vinyl to make very unique, individualized shirts for field trips and special events. We will first tie dye the shirts then I will add a special design using the vinyl along with the Circut I received previously from and awesome donors like you! This will not only make it easier for me when out in the community, but I believe they kids will feel really special in their special shirts.
