My Students

Our students are bright and capable young men and women, eager to learn and socialize. We try to provide many opportunities for them to come together and work as teams, inside and outside of the classroom, to improve their skills and best prepare them for a future of human interaction.

Our high school is located in North Carolina and is largely populated by the children of our military stationed here and overseas.

We are a high needs school, serving a low-income population. With North Carolina school budgets being cut in every department, we no longer have enough funding for extra materials and look to you, dear donors, to aid in the education of all these bright young men and women.

My Project

My students and I are requesting different board and card games to play at their leisure, in class, and in the after school Game Club! Over the past year, there has been a tremendous resurgence of interest in classic and modern table games. We have had some luck securing donations from parents and teachers, but it's not enough to satisfy the high demands of our large student population. Students in large and small groups love to get together and play games around a table - whether it is card games like Uno or board games like Risk and Trivial Pursuit.

Board games can foster the ability to focus, and lengthen students' attention span by encouraging the completion of an exciting, enjoyable game.

Playing games is an easy and excellent way to spend unhurried, enjoyable time together. As an added bonus, board games are also rich in learning opportunities. They satisfy competitive urges and the desire to master new skills and concepts, such as: number and shape recognition, grouping, and counting, letter recognition and reading, visual perception and color recognition, eye-hand coordination and manual dexterity.

We are requesting this "starter kit" of games that have been chosen by our students. They will be available for classroom check out, individual and group use and after school during Game Club as well as every day during extended hours. Thank you!
