My Students

Our school is a rural school in southeast Louisiana. All students at our school receive free breakfast and lunch. Our community is not a wealthy community, but they are rich in community spirit. In the beginning of the school year, a local church invited our entire faculty in for a lunch and prayer. At that lunch, the church pledged to support us as much as possible with prayers, manpower, and finances as available.

Our parents often work multiple jobs to make ends meet.

The children needed a safe place to be supervised after school hours while their parents work. This prayer lunch inspired us to collaborate with local businesses to help build up our free after-school program. Through local and federal grants and business sponsors, we now have a free after school program for students in grades in three to five. We have found our students are most interested in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) classes so we made our after school program a STEAM-focused program. In our program, we have a science lab, a coding class, a computer literacy class, a maker lab, music/dance class, and the "math and science of cooking".

My Project

We have been so fortunate to secure convection ovens, griddles, dehydrators, skillets, and more through the generous donors of DonorsChoose. Unfortunately we hold our cooking class in the school's auditorium/cafeteria. This space is shared with the whole school. This space is also utilized for school dances for not only our school, but the neighboring high school. We desperately need a secure place to secure all our goodies. This cart is perfect! It locks which means our supplies won't sprout legs and walk off or get broken. It is also on wheels. This will be great for those days when we have to completely vacate the auditorium for a special event. When those special events happen, we can just roll the cart down the hall to a trusted teachers room. Please help us protect our coooking goodies so that students can enjoy their use for years to come.
