My Students

We are a Title I campus in which at least 88% of our student population receives free or reduced-price lunch. The campus has decided that they will feed all students breakfast and lunch. We are surrounded by other school districts that are less than 10% reduced, yet somehow our students still strive for greatness and beat them in academic competitions (pre-covid). We have a population of 70% English as a second language students as well. Needless to say, we are a highly diverse campus that outworks its goals each and every year.

We are great at science but need some materials for research.

My classroom is a unique mix of kids in which the first two class periods are primarily filled with state-recognized gifted or talented students. The other two science classes I teach are full of students who are recognized as at-risk. When looking at the projects of these students, it is highly difficult to determine which project came from which group.

My Project

We were lucky enough to land a PS5 without having to pay secondary prices. Each and every Friday the students who have had a perfect week have the choice to play during lunch and recess. This has proven to be a great motivator for the students with the most challenging backgrounds and histories of behavior concerns.

With these supplies, we will have more variety of games to play, as well as have some take-home rewards for the students who truly achieve.

This may prove to be the strangest DonorsChoose yet, however when students are motivated to do their best work as well as behave within the guidelines, great learning can occur.
