My Students

The Young Queens and Kings Scholar Program was created in September 2019. The goal of the program is to help students of color close the achievement gaps, have a safe place to go after school as well as giving the opportunities that they won't have in other programs.

Of our 40 students, these students display qualities of being unique, artistic, funny, loving and every student shows outstanding academic strengths.

Our students put the F in family and the L in love.

My Project

This year, we have a new summer programming coming to the our school. The program is called Young Queens and Kings Scholar program and the program focuses on social emotional learning and learning how to appropriately display body language, tone as well as proper language.

Unfortunately, our school isn't an AC building and it can be quite hot in the summer.

We are looking to have two portable AC units donated so our students can be the "cool kids" this summer instead of hot kids. The purpose of the AC units is to provide a cooler working environment for each student.
