    My Students

    We are the THORN LODGE TIGERS! Small but mighty! We are a small K-5 school with very passionate students who LOVE to learn! We have a very high population of English Language Learners who are both Canadian born and new to Canada. We were fortunate to recently receive several newcomer families from Syria into our school. We have supportive teachers, support staff, and admin who come to school every day ready to give 110% to our students.

    How will this project impact them?

    We are planning on buying some supplies to support our English Language Learners as the resources for this program are in desperate need of updating. Many of our English Language Learners benefit from hands on activities with oral practice when they are learning the language. Having letters, puzzle pieces with pictures, 3D objects, and more are all materials that will help facilitate student learning. Students are engaged and excited when they have materials that support what they are doing/ Playing games is another huge part of English language acquisition as having oral opportunities is the most important step for students when they are learning - so new board games, specifically related to language will greatly improve students abilities. Finally, supporting vocabulary development in curriculum areas such as math, science, and social studies will help our students be more successful.

    * Fulfillment Materials: This covers the physical costs of processing teacher and student thank-you letters and pictures, including printing, postage, labels, envelopes, cover sheets, etc.

    ** Payment Processing Fee: An average of fees charged to MyClassNeeds for processing donations (e.g. credit card payments through a secure server). We have worked hard to select the most secure option for the cost.

The optional contribution supports the work we do to engage teachers, build awareness, and to generally run MyClassNeeds. To do that we need a world- class website supported by strong business systems and processes that improve over time.
