My Students

Hurricane Harvey has had a significant impact on our students and their families. They have lost so much, but they are determined to move forward and make thing better than they were before the hurricane. My school is an early college high school where students are working hard to finish not only their high school diploma, but an Associate’s Degree from the local community college.

The majority of our students are from low-income households and are first generation college students.

Although our students are faced with many challenges, they are eager to come to school. I want to provide my students with a safe and welcoming school environment. I also want to provide them with opportunities to reduce stress in their lives.

My Project

My project is focused on helping students reduce stress. A wonderful outlet to reduce stress is to dance. Our school has recently received a Nintendo Wii, but we don’t have dance DVDs for the Nintendo Wii. Once we have DVDs, we will be able to give students an opportunity to dance before and after school.

By donating to this project, you can help our students dance their stress away.

I selected DVDs from different dance styles like Zumba, Hip Hop, and line dancing. I think giving students a variety of dance styles will give them different options and opportunities. What a wonderful way to get some exercise and reduce the stress!
