I teach 3rd grade in a city school system. Our students come from a low socio-economic background and many are even given food on Friday so they have food at their homes over the weekend. Massive lay-offs in the area when the mills closed only cemented an already growing poverty level. However, our parents and students rise to the challenge and support our school. At each parent night, there is standing room only as they come to ensure that their children are given a future and a hope. Even if they cannot support the school financially, the atmosphere in our school is one of support, community, and a determination to rise above their current circumstances.
