My Students

Take a walk through our hallways and you'll hear students speaking English, Spanish, Korean, Sudanese, Arabic, and just about any language you can think of. Over 40 languages are spoken at our school.

Many of our 7th and 8th graders are refugees and are learning the ins and outs of a whole new culture while still learning the concepts of their curriculum.

They come from all different backgrounds. Each brings their own story to our school culture, and for many of them, the discoveries and excitement of learning are novel experiences.

My Project

Nearly one-third of our student population is signed up for our after-school program. Last year, we extended our program to incorporate dinner, which allowed a large population of our students to receive three meals a day at school.

Our students can now receive dinner at school, but we are struggling to maintain a sufficient supply of plates and forks that students can use.

Your contribution to this project will help ensure that we can continue to provide dinner for our students, many of whom rely on the school to provide their breakfast, lunch, and dinner. As you can imagine, it can be difficult to focus in class when you haven't eaten anything since yesterday. Please help us help our students.
