My Students

My students in the live in rural, upstate South Carolina. There is a strong sense of community because of our small-town feel. Our schools are a binding force in the community.

School is where the community's children are taught, cared for, and sometimes fed and clothed.

Like many other communities, ours is a land of extremes, either wealthy or struggling. All of our teachers and school staff work hard to address the needs of our children so that they can come to school ready to learn.

My Project

Every child deserves to start the school year with a fresh haircut. Our high school book club has gathered donations of free haircuts from local salons and barber shops. Those haircut coupons will be attached to a hair-themed book so that our students can read to the stylist while they get gussied up for school.

A haircut and a new book will help ALL of our students come back to school ready to learn.

We believe this project will serve a need in our community and promote a love of reading at the same time. Those students that come from a home where resources are limited, often do not have enough books in the home. Access to books is a huge indicator of reading success. This project helps meet two different needs for our students.

We have partnered with all of the schools that feed into our high school so that our guidance counselors can distribute the haircut coupons and books to the students that need a little help getting ready for the first day of school next year.
