My Students

My students are amazing and have a passion for learning. Even though most of them live below the poverty line, they came to school each day with a desire to educate themselves so they could provide themselves a better future. Unfortunately due to the pandemic, our school had to shut its doors, and many students lost the one place where they felt safe and provided for. Since our school closure, we have tried to provide technology and internet access to as many of our students as possible. We have also tried to team up with local organizations to provide healthy food for our students, who were being provided breakfast, lunch, and supper at school. Even with all the efforts and safeguards that have been put into place many of our students are still struggling. Several students have expressed being depressed and unmotivated due to family crises and their parents being laid off. I would like to create care packages with food, school supplies, and other essentials that I can personally drop off to my students who are in need, to offer a small glimmer of hope in this time of need.

My Project

These materials will cheer my students up and motivate them to continue distance learning though it's difficult. The books will go to my students who have don't have internet access or books at home that are at their level. It's important that they still are able to read a book that they enjoy every day. Some of the snack materials will go to struggling families who aren't able to provide certain "extra" comforts, and some materials will be raffled off to students who are finding a way to persevere and still participate in their education, even though these troubling times.
