My Students

Our school has approximately 1550 students in grades 9-12. We are located in an unincorporated suburb of a large city.

Approximately 80% of our students are college-bound.

Many will receive scholarships to multiple universities. Students have the opportunity to participate in many advanced placement courses and extracurricular activities. We have several National Merit Finalists this school year!

Our school is considered an academic school but we excel at other things too. Our soccer team is nationally ranked and we're pretty good at other sports too!

My Project

My students need a Cricut machine and tools to use for creating school spirit items to sell in our school store. Our career technical education students and special education are collaborating to run our school's first ever school store.

The store, called the Eagle's Nest, is a place for our special education students to learn transitional skills to aid them in the workforce by working with career technical education students to sell items like pens, pencils, posterboard and lunch items.

The store gives students the opportunity to experience a simulated job and work with students from different backgrounds. The store will provide funds for other community service and school improvement projects. We plan to use the Cricut to create school spirit items to sell in our store.
