My Students

My little learners are a very inquisitive group of students. These young scholars are discovering the world for the first time. Their curiosity and excitement is contagious and I love helping them learn. My students love books, listening to stories, music, building puzzles and being creative artists. They need lots of encouragement and support to become lifelong learners.

Our schools lack the funds to provide the necessary supplies, equipment, technology, and parent workshops-that our young learners need to succeed in their education.

My students are happy, energetic, and ready to learn. They are learning to become independent learners and having the right resources can help motivate and engage them. I have to reach them to teach them! These wonderful kids need the opportunity to use technology because it can make the difference in their academic endeavor.

My Project

My little ones will need lots of stickers as they start school. Stickers are magical and they always bring a smile to the child. Encouraging kids to try their best is a great way to learning. We will need glue sticks, felt pens for writing and construction paper to create many wonderful activities. The magnetic picture frames will help create a bulletin board as we get to know each other. Little ones love to see themselves as they learn to recognize their names and friends. The instant Fuji film will help us get started.

The best way to start the school year is with many wonderful opportunities to learn, and it is your donation that will ultimately increase their academic achievement.

These supplies are important for my students as well as helping them love learning. I want my students to succeed and making learning fun is important. Kindergarten kids learn best when they are engaged, and have the materials they need.

The screen protectors and the fire tablet cases are greatly needed to protect the technology that was donated by awesome donors like you. My young learners will love using these amazing tablets and by protecting them they will last longer. Thank you for your generous help in welcoming our new students to school. You make the difference in their academic experience.
