My Students

There are 450 students in our school, in fourth and fifth grade, coming together for the first time, as our elementary schools merge into one school. Over the last two years, we have become one of two states in our nation that have mandated social emotional learning (NYSSEL.) Our students have grown considerably in their abilities to communicate with one another, to show compassion, and to empathize with those around them. We have taken on a variety of projects, our present one being the project that we are seeking support for, from Donor's Choose.

The busy hands of our children, wrapped in yards of fleecy fabric, will foster a feeling of compassion, as they work to bring warmth to those in need.

Our students will continue to use their creativity to give back to our community, through many different collaborative tasks. These projects will also foster a sense of teamwork and cooperation as they work together toward a common goal.

My Project

Our project will reinforce the character education/social emotional learning traits of gratitude, teamwork, service, and respect. The request for fleece comes from knowing that the material itself, is a versatile fabric, which can be manipulated easily by our students, to create beautiful blankets and pillow covers for those in need.

The warmth of the fleece is symbolic of the warmth and empathy that we want to instill in our students, as they learn about the needs of special groups within our community, and work collaboratively, making blankets.

The project will be completed over a series of sessions, but after initial instruction and support, the children will be able to work independently with their groups.
