My Students

We are a small rural community. The students in this school need the opportunities to be successful and shine.

We are striving to bridge gaps between​ the high population of at-risk students at our school.

Our student engagement, achievement, and motivation are enhanced through the integration of technology. We are very proud to be a STEM academy. We strive to engage our student and encourage high standards and success without limits. When students are excited about learning they are more successful. We teach our children to be team players, to be punctual, to have pride in their efforts and to always do their best whether on the field, court, classroom, or future job.

We strive to engage our student and encourage high standards and success without limits. When students are excited about learning they are more successful.

My Project

We are requesting Environmental STEM Projects to use in our Mentoring program called Bear Buddies. We are 7th graders who love to experiment and complete STEM Projects. We work with our elementary students on their reading and teaching them to learn to read. Our program is called "Bear Buddies."

We would like to extend this program to other school disciplines like Science and Math.

We want to teach our fellow Bears to love our earth and Environment. We have chosen several Environmental Science projects to complete and share with the young students at our school.

This project will help teach them in a fun hands on way about important environmental issues!
