My Students

My students are much more than what meets the eye. Though our county was affected by Hurricane Harvey (be it housing, workplaces, or other means), we all pulled together to recover. My students continue the thirst of knowledge and put 110% effort in all that they do while at school. They absorb any opportunity to learn something new.

My kids actively engage in STEM projects by being outside while learning, playing, exploring, and becoming both physically and mentally fit.

My kids are like sponges who are thirsty to absorb new learning opportunities, and there is nothing more rewarding than seeing a light-bulb of clarity beam from their smiling faces when they persevere over a personal challenge such as Hurricane Harvey. My students amaze me every single day by their willingness to learn and their constant effort to make a difference in their lives.

My Project

Who wouldn’t enjoy sitting on a nice soft padded stool? Our 3rd and 4th grade scientists will be much more comfortable as they learn sitting on these padded stools at their lab tables. Our county continues to rebuild after Hurricane Harvey, and we strive for our kids to be SAFE, make learning FUN, and keep them comfortable during the day. Out with the traditional wooden stools and in with a new year and new seating. I hope to give our lab a fun-filled vibe of hands on learning! These stools are certain to bring and updated look to our Science Lab and smiles to the faces of over 100 students. Thank you for your support!
