My Students

My Title I, level I (lowest 25%) Specific Learning Disabled (SLD), Emotionally/Behavioral Disabled (EBD) high school students are in ICU! Yes, some students are enrolled in Intensive Reading Plus! More than 90% of the student population qualifies for free and/or reduced-price lunch. Approximately 80% of the students live in single-family homes.

These 9th and 10th-grade remedial readers attend a Title I school.

There is a negative stigma to Intensive Reading or Intensive Reading Plus classes. Some have Individual Education Plans, while others really struggle to remain proficient in English and Math. For these students inclusion into positive worlds will not only help to close the achievement gap but put much needed academic confidence into the hands of students.

My Project

This cheer tent will help shade the hottt Florida sun and keep the team dry while our 5 to 10 minutes sun showers pass by. The weather is so unpredictable however the performances which are choreographed must go on.

The cheerleaders perform rain or shine.

The tent and umbrellas will certainly make a huge difference by keeping them warm, cool and dry. They do and are expected to perform in the rain as long as their is no thunder or lightning in the immediate area.

The team also practices outside in the grassy area behind the school. There are no trees for shade the tent is almost a must in our 100-degree weather.
