My Students

Our students and their families are really special. We have a large school, with an ethnically and socioeconomically diverse population, and we work hard to create opportunities for our community to get together to share their unique experiences and engage in and celebrate learning.

With a majority of the families in our school living in poverty, we try to create innovative learning experiences that build our students' repertoire.

We want to offer students at our Title I public school the same sorts of experience that students in rich public schools receive. We are focused on social justice and educational equity.

My Project

Our counselors meet with students in our classrooms daily. My students and I want to get them the supplies they need to do their jobs to help students who have anxiety and stress in their lives. We also want to get them a few gifts to recognize all the hard work they do. When the counselors are supported, they can better support us! This project is to get stress toys for the MANY students who have anxiety and anger issues. These toys will provide a coping skill for them.

We love our hard-working, loving counselors!

We will divide the stress toys between the counselors, so they can share them with students who are having a hard time. This project also includes a few gifts (shirt, hydoflask and makeup) to show our counselors we love them! Thank you in advance for considering funding this project that helps counselors support students!
