Christmas in January

Help me give my students and their children Christmas in January. Most of my students were not able to give their children a good Christmas for several different reasons.

My Students

My students come from very diverse backgrounds and that provides us with great opportunities to learn from one another. We have a predominately African American student population but in more recent years have encountered a rapidly increasing Hispanic and English as a Second Language or English Language Learners (ESL/ELL). Our students have very diverse life experiences that in some ways have set them off course from graduating in the "normal" expected four-year timeline. Nonetheless, our students show resilience in returning to and continuing school on their journey to obtain their high school diploma.

My Project

A number of my students have very young children and were not able to give their child(ren) the Christmas they really wanted. I would like to support my students and their families in having the Christmas they want and deserve, even if it is in January (or months to come). I want to provide them with fun but also educational toys and supplies that they can use to support their child's physical, emotional, and educational development. Some students have just recently had children and are in need of baby furniture, while others have toddlers who are curious and ready to explore through toys, games, and pretend play. Given their struggles of being teenage parents, who are still trying to finish school and also work jobs, they are always appreciative of any support. My hope is to be able to teach students how to use their items effectively in order to have fun with their children while also being able to provide teachable/educational moments that foster a love of learning in their children.
