Let me introduce you to my fourth grade classroom. It is made up of approximately 40, young mathematicians and scientists who love to explore, investigate and learn. Each day they come in with lots of energy to be channeled in the right direction for math and science. However, they do not always have the necessary materials to do the work. Our school serves students in grades 3-5 and provides rigorous academics, fantastic teachers and a safe learning environment. As a result, we are consistently one of the top-performing schools in the state every year. Our goal is that all students excel to their highest potential.
These fourth graders will someday be our engineers, doctors and scientists who may discover a cure for cancer.
Despite the fact that our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds, with seventy-five percent of our students receiving free or reduced-price lunches. These students want to excel. The absentee rate is extremely low among my class and their state test scores are generally above the state average.
The materials in this project will be given to my students to use each day. Many of my students do not have access to their own personal hygiene items. They will be able to brush their teeth with the toothpaste and toothbrush. They can Brush their hair and have body wash to bathe with and deodorant to put on.
AT nine years old, appearance is important to my students.
They all come from broken, single parent, or extended family homes. With this project, each student would get an emergency kit to keep in their backpack so they would have access to it anywhere.
