My Students

My class starts every day with the promise, "Let's make it a great day!" They enter the room excited to learn. They are a group of students who have embraced the idea of being a community of learners who are always there for each other. They are full of wonder. Throughout the school year, I watch them develop their ability to delve into a task and problem solve. Our school is built on the idea of community.

We are an ELL center-based school and have a high level of diversity which is embraced by staff, students, and the entire community.

We are also a Title I School where 72% of our students receive free or reduced-cost lunch. We do not let these things define us, rather we all work harder to overcome any obstacles that the students face that we cannot change. Students and staff give 100%.

My Project

My students need a variety of supplies to make learning more productive in our classroom. You can help us get "Write to the Point" through your generous donation! We go through a large number of pens and pencils and utilize markers to create posters and charts to help cement our learning. We need graph paper for a variety of Science activities.

Students in my class do not all have the funds to purchase basic supplies.

We have a class bucket of pencils and pens to make sure that they have what they need to complete their work. Your donation will help us Supply Our Learning with graph paper, pencils, and pens and markers.
