My Students

My school is growing by leaps and bounds. We are a community that is growing as fast as they can build. Our school has grown from 800 student to almost 1,000 in just a few years. We serve both golf communities and trailer park communities.

As our community becomes more diverse we are serving more students who are in need than ever before.

All of my students are proud and hardworking. As a counselor I do my best to meet their needs, both physical and mental.

My Project

Providing students with shampoo and conditioner will enable them to come to school with clean hair and a clear mind. They will be able to focus on school work without worrying about the social pressure and its negative impact.

The hygiene items will enable my students to look forward to coming to school each day.

The students will eliminate one worry and enable the students to be carefree while learning! Students feeling positive about themselves shows in their self confidence. Self confidence encourages a student to participate in class and has a great impact on their success in school daily.
