My Students

We are a culturally diverse, rural eighth through twelfth-grade high school. Our school has embraced the concept of a flex-mod schedule. Students can fit anywhere from six to eight classes into their schedule allowing more time for AP classes, college-credit classes, electives, and CTE (career and technical education) courses. Students are given at least four hours personal learning time (PLT) throughout the week which they can use as they choose to complete homework, work in groups with their peers or meet with teachers during "office hours."

We have high expectations for our students; meaning we want them to leave high school fully prepared for whatever they have chosen, whether it be college, vocational or straight into a career field.

Our Core Beliefs and Mission statement for our school is “My Plan My Future”.

My Project

Daily personal hygiene and sanitation practices should be a routine for all people to stay healthy and happy. Unfortunately, with the closing of our United Way warehouse this year, our school is finding it hard to be a source for our students in need. We would like to help these students and their families by making sure they have access to laundry products so that our students might come to school clean and fresh every day and ready to learn.

Students who have basic resources at home such as laundry detergent and dryer sheets are able to come to school with a higher level of confidence without worrying about peer reactions.

These basic needs for Sparkling Futures laundry supplies will make a difference with our students by allowing them to feel confident and ready to learn. They will be able to focus on academics without feeling self-conscious. Students will know these items are available for their personal use. We greatly appreciate your support for this project.
