My Students

We are a magnet high school in CT, that serves the city, as well as the suburbs surrounding it. Our students choose to come to our school to study either business or allied health. All students qualify for free lunch and often receive fee waivers for standardized testing.

Our students are some of the most interesting and driven kids you will ever meet.

Many students travel over an hour to attend our school and take advantage of the opportunities we offer. Many also come to school despite the many challenges they might face outside of the school environment.

My Project

The distance between teacher and student has been bridged by the digital highway, but there is something nice about receiving a handwritten note and an envelope in the mailbox - especially during these times where we see each other so infrequently.

Creating community and school spirit takes more effort than ever before.

The gift cards will be used to help motivate students as they come to virtual tutoring and social events. They are desperate for connection with their peers and teachers. The gift cards will be used as raffle prizes The last time we had gift cards as prizes, we learned how many students used them to help their families during the Covid crisis - especially since we are still remote.
