My students are beautiful and brilliant. Our class consists of multi-level learners. Our school is a high-poverty, Title I school, meaning that one hundred percent of our students qualify for free or reduced-priced lunch. A fraction of my students are homeless and many of my other students have houses or apartments they share with one or more families. Some of my students do not have a bed to sleep on. I've noticed they are hungry in the mornings and by midday. We are an extended day school where the kids stay later than a usual school dismissal time.
Our school is located in a high-poverty neighborhood.
My students work very hard every day. Our class has a ninety-eight percent attendance rate, which means the students rarely miss school. We value our learning time.
My students come from multi-ethnic backgrounds, each with distinctive cultural traditions. In our classroom, we blend our traditions to form strong community ties.
Our garden has been a place that all of our students, faculty, and community members loved to sit and enjoy. We are seeking the tools needed for our students to successfully plant and water our garden.
A garden has provided a hands-on experience for many of our science/math lessons as well as empowering our students with lifelong skills.
We want our students to be inspired by gardening while learning where their food comes from and how insects and other things in nature play a vital role in taking care of the environment.
Our garden club provides students with the opportunity to plant, grow, and try healthy foods and learn new skills. A water hose and sprinkler will help our students take care of their garden and it will give them a sense of ownership. We also need additional garden tools as we have more students joining the garden club every year.
