I am one of the four counselors at school. Two of them share the Freshmen and Sophomores, and another counselor and myself help the Juniors and Seniors.
We serve a student body of approximately 1000 students, boys and girls who are academically gifted.
Our school is probably one of the most diverse schools in the state with 35% Caucasians; 34% African-Americans; 17% Asians; 7% Hispanics and 6% multiple ethnicity.
Many of our students go on to prestigious colleges and they succeed.
As a counselor, I see kids all day. Many of them for their college applications, and many for problems that they have in their academic subjects.
I work with the other counselor, the social worker and 504 specialist to help the students with issues and most of the time, these students do not have the essentials to come prepared to school.
It would be easy to blame it on them or their parents, but a vast majority of these students are under free-reduced lunch status, which is synonym of poverty, pretty much.
It would be of great help if you could provide us with an assortment of classroom essentials so that we can hand them what is needed: a pen, a pencil, some white-out or glue, paper and sticky notes. It would be wonderful to have a pencil sharpener to help send the student to class with a sharpened pencil.
Thank you very much!
