My Students

My students are a wonderful group of children. They love coming to school each and every day. They work hard in all academic areas. They are struggling learners who put forth a tremendous amount of effort to excel.

My students are wonderful and they love to learn!

They try so hard all day long, and have made such amazing improvements this year and would love to continue to make improvements. They look forward to school each and every day and every subject is exciting for them.

My Project

My students need an iPad to help with math and science activities. This iPad will make such a difference in the lives of my students. We would use this iPad for all math and science activities. We would be able to use this iPad in our science and math centers and we would share it with all of the students. We would be so thankful if we received this amazing iPad.

Funds are very low in my district so it's extremely difficult to acquire the necessary supplies to help my students become successful.

There are so many wonderful activities we can do with this amazing iPad! Thank you for taking the time to read through our proposal.
