My Students

My students come from a wide variety of diverse cultural backgrounds. My students also speak a multitude of languages. My students also come from different economic backgrounds; over 90% of them receive free lunch. Although my students come from so many backgrounds, they all come to school eager to learn each and every day. They work so hard trying to read and write. They also love to learn math, social studies, and science! They are a wonderful, hard-working group of students.

My Project

My students will benefit from a sturdy mailbox. This mailbox will keep their work organized and less time spent in class returning work.

This mailbox will help students organize their materials that they bring in from home, as well as those important papers and homework that need to go home.

This organizer will serve as a communication center for the students and the parents. Because my students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and speak different languages, this center will be vital for all work to go where it needs to.

Having a kid-friendly, sturdy mailbox will be extremely helpful in getting important messages, documents, student work, school notices between school and home. The lines of communication will be very clear and no work will go missing!
