My school is a neighborhood charter school. We serve three hundred thirty students in Pre-K through 5th grade. 90% of our students are below the poverty line and receive free and reduced lunches. Our zip code ranks highest in our state of incarcerated parents, child abuse and single parent families. Though these stats are staggering, our kids are resilient, determined and one success story after another.
Each year I am motivated by the wonder and amazement I see take place within my kids.
They are future business leaders, entrepreneurs, artists, athletes, singers, dancers, comedians, and teachers. They possess a grit and determination that is unseen in many adults, and they know that lessons learned from failing are more valuable than money.
We are led by a principal and a team of teachers who are visible, engaged, and invested in every aspect of success for my kids. This team fosters the idea that no matter what your background, you have a chance to make it better through education. We believe that empowering our students with experiences will make them the problem solvers of tomorrow.
So, here we are in a world surrounded by technology and our kids, literally, have the world at their fingertips. However, they have limited knowledge on how to effectively navigate through it all.
Using technology in an effective way takes resources, time and project-based learning opportunities.
With these requested Acer laptop computers you empower a classroom of students to engage in research, give presentations and use online programs, like Reflex Math to advance in the area of STEM learning.
Your support for this project will show our kids that we all have a chance to play a role in the education of our young leaders.
