My Students

My students are a group of diverse, energetic, enthusiastic teens who love to engage in exploring new experiences and ideas. As a school serving grades 6-12 we get the unique opportunity to watch our students grow from adolescents to young men and women.

As a school committed to anti-racism and integration, our students are activists in every sense of the word.

Our students work together with each other and with members of the school community to fight for what they believe in.

My Project

Our students spend too much time at home and during school on electronics. We are all becoming too addicted to electronics.

These materials, basketballs, UNO, and playing cards, will help us encourage our kids to be kids!

When the weather is nice they need equipment to play in the school yard. When it's rainy or cold, they can play games with each other instead of just spending more time on their devices.

When we provide games for our students to play, their faces light up and they interact with each other and are not isolated and disconnected on their phones. Help us help the kids get off of their phones!

Grades 6-8
