My Students

We are an amazing, vibrant collection of artists in the inner-city, coastal Connecticut community of Bridgeport.

Our resilient Title I kindergarten through eighth-grade school is in the middle of a turbulent Title I district.

We support students as they navigate every kind of emotional and social challenge that you can imagine.

Economic need is high, but creative passion is even higher! Please help our creative and talented middle school students touch the wonderful materials they need to thrive and explore.

My Project

We have students who come to school hungry due to food scarcity and others who are growing so fast that the free school breakfast is just not enough. Thankfully, we have the ability to cook pancakes in the winter for those who are still hungry. The protein of this bacon would be a welcome addition to all those carbs.

Bacon is a big deal in our community.

Bacon will create some serious excitement to a tough situation and keep my students going the whole day. We will be able to pile on the syrup without fear of running out, too!
