My Students

My students are in kindergarten and first grade. Many of my students one from low-income households. While our students face many challenges, they always come to school ready to learn! I want all of my students to be excited about coming to school and learning regardless of the challenges they face at home.

Every child deserves to come to school where they feel comfortable, happy and engaged in the learning process!

Our students seek comfort from our school, teachers and staff. We hope to provide them with items to protect them from the elements this winter.

My Project

Winter is close! It is that time for me to start thinking about my kindergarten and first grade students as they are at the bus stops and walking to and from school. Our winters can get cold, in the negatives.

We have many kids who are neighborhood kids and these kids often walk to school.

This project is going to help them stay warm at the bus stop or walking to and from school. They love being outside and having their head warm will allow them to still play and be warm. I know they will love these warm hats!
