My Students

My sixth grade students are hard working and continue to try and do their very best. They try to complete assignments on a timely basis but, many of the computers we have are outdated and often take a long time for my students to get on the internet and complete their work.

My school is located in New York and serves a very poor economic group that lacks the means to improve their lives on a daily basis.

The school serves its neighborhood and surrounding areas from a diverse population.

My Project

With your help my students will have the opportunity to complete assignments on time, as well as take important exams that lets them track their growth. This would allow them to get on the internet in a timely manner without the waiting. My students would also be able to complete projects and other assignments without any hassle or interruptions.

My students are such hard workers and love when they have a computer in front of them to help them complete work.

With your help my sixth graders this year and for years to come would have the necessary equipment to make them lif long learners.
