My Students

Approximately 75% of the students at our school receive free or reduced-priced lunch. Many are low-income, poverty, homeless, and we have a high number of military families. There is an amazing group of hard-working young adults in my class. They strive every day to do their best and succeed. Their goals and dreams are to achieve a high school diploma and go to college.

These students take any obstacle in their path head-on and don't let it slow them down.

These students overcome so many different setbacks during their time in school.

My Project

My students are amazing and love to learn each day. Financial literacy is a topic that is important for all students to learn so that they are prepared for their future. We want to turn our classroom into a financial literacy carnival where the students will rotate through different stations to solve different types of financial management and literacy problems and situations. My students will earn raffle tickets and chances to play the spin the wheel game and drop the plank game when they advance to a new station. Each of the stations will grow in rigor. My students will be able to win various classroom rewards and prizes, since every carnival is not complete with prizes! It is amazing to get to see my students learning while having fun, because it helps the students know that school doesn't have to be a place to not enjoy. I am requesting a variety of Gatorade drinks, fruit juice, chips, cookies, jumbo smarties, blow pops, and paper gift bags to create a variety of prizes for our financial literacy carnival. Having these resources will make a huge impact in my students' learning in such an important topic as financial literacy. Thank you for considering to support my students learning through our financial literacy carnival!
