My students are vibrant. My students are energetic. My students are diverse. They are passionate, enduring, and have the future at their fingertips. My students contribute to their school and community, but they are also at a disadvantage.
Most of my students come from broken and/or poverty-stricken homes.
The school hosts an over 90% population that is on free or reduced-price lunch making us a Title I school. Despite the economic state of many of our students, they show us on a daily, how motivated they are. They want to provide a better life for themselves, and they are working hard to try to get there; they want to develop life skills that will allow them to move forward in life.
Our students are vibrant and continually trying to work towards being college and career ready. Unfortunately often times we do not get the chance to reward them.
Help us take 200 of our bright students to see Just Mercy: movie about a black man who gets exonerated after sitting on death row for six years.
Through your donation, our students would be able to see a movie that highlights a moment in time and the Equal Justice program. Our students will be able to see an educational lesson come to life on the big screen all while being able to be rewarded by taking a day away from school and into the movie theater.
