My Students

My students are vibrant. My students are energetic. My students are diverse. They are passionate, enduring, and have the future at their fingertips. My students contribute to their school and community, but they are also at a disadvantage.

Most of my students come from broken and/or poverty-stricken homes.

The school hosts an over 90% population that is on free or reduced-price lunch making us a Title I school. Despite the economic state of many of our students, they show us on a daily, how motivated they are. They want to provide a better life for themselves, and they are working hard to try to get there; they want to develop life skills that will allow them to move forward in life.

My Project

We are so excited to bring a Unified Special Olympics Cheer team to our school but we need help! A unified team means that we will have students with intellectual disabilities and students without intellectual disabilities competing on the same team. This is very exciting because students with intellectual disabilities have not had the opportunity to be a part of a cheer team at our school until now. They are vey excited and highly motivated to get started.

Please help our team get started!

Our Special Olympics team wants to make sure that they stand out in their uniforms. Help us get large glitter cheer bows and Puzine Pom Poms to stand out. The Lil Princess Girls Nylon Dance Duffle Bag will help in giving the athletes something to carry their equipment. We are hoping you can help with building inclusion in our school!
