Cheer for Teambuilding

Help me give my students cheer uniforms to participate in a team sport.

My Students

I teach social studies to 9th graders in a high-poverty neighborhood. Many of my students are below grade level. The school where I teach is a diverse public high school: 23% of students are African American, 19% Hispanic, 16% Asian, 2% Native American, and 36% Caucasian.

Many of my students struggle with challenges outside of school.

Over 70% of our students are below the poverty line. Many students are in the foster care system or are homeless. Many are recent immigrants learning English as a second language. I have amazing students who use their diversity and life experiences to their advantage.

My students are from Ethiopia, Somalia, Rwanda, Vietnam, Mexico, Guatemala, Myanmar (Burma), Thailand, Micronesia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and other places around the world.

This year I teach freshman world history and two sheltered versions of history for English Language Learners. Some of my students have just moved to the United States and are beginning to learn English. In my class, my students will learn about the world and other cultures.

My Project

Our students need uniforms for cheer.

Many of our students can not afford to buy their own uniforms, please help give them an opportunity to participate in a school sport.

Students on cheer learn team building, leadership, and school spirit. Students do better in school when they are connected to a sport or a club. These uniforms will be printed in the school colors and will have the letter to help build school spirit. Please help us give students the opportunity to be more connected to school sports and activities. These uniforms mean more than I can explain in words to our students.
