My Students

This year I am team teaching fifth grade optional and working closely with my fellow fifth-grade teachers.

We are a school that is trying to bring back the arts in everyday learning.

The students and teachers work hard to bring arts into our everyday learning. We work with not only drawing but in creating songs, writing music, designing buildings, etc. We are a Title I school where 100% of our students receive free lunch.

We need your help. We are in an urban area with very few prospects for the future. We are working to change that and want your help.

My Project

Thank you for taking the time. I am asking for an upgraded laptop for my students.

This has a fast processor to help run school programs and allows for better presentation that my optional students love to prepare.

Overall this is a good long term investment for a school laptop. I have a portable hard drive I will attach but the actual processing speed on this is very high allowing it to run Microsoft Teams and the Whiteboard at the same time so students can present to those in person and those online.
