My sixth graders are sweet and caring students. They come to school ready to tackle each day with the most positive attitude I have ever seen. It is really amazing to see my students genuinely show so much passion for learning, and respect for one another. They try super hard to succeed in everything they do. Even though many of my sixth graders come from low-income households and receive free school lunch, they always come to school ready to learn.
My students need hats, scarves, and gloves to keep them warm and cozy during Chicago winters. When I see my students arrive to school, their little faces and hands are so cold and red because they are exposed to the harsh weather as they travel to school. I have also requested deodorants for the students because many of them feel self-conscious about how they smell, specifically after gym class. Last, I have a growing number of students who have acne and do not have the appropriate products to help clean and soothe their skin. Some of the students have made matters worse for their skin by constantly scratching their faces. The items my students need will definitely be used and appreciated.
