My Students

Our school is located in a suburb of Raleigh, NC. The school serves sixth, seventh, & eighth grade students. Our student population consists of 15% Caucasian, 49% African American, 30% Hispanic, 3% Multi-Racial, 1.5% Asian, and 1.5% other. We have 6% Limited English Proficient and 65% free/reduced lunch.  In addition, 16% of our students receive special education services and 5% are identified as academically gifted in Reading and/or Math.

My Project

For the first time ever we are hosting a Back To School School Supply Drive. Our school serves many students who receive free and reduced lunch. Additionally, due to COVID layoffs more are in need than normal. The purpose of our drive is to supply students with quality school supplies to decrease barriers in their education.

This community event will benefit students in our school as well as their siblings in neighboring schools.

Local restaurants are donating food, community partners are donating paper, pencils, pens, colored pencils, rulers, calculators and more. Zipped binders will assist students in staying organized.
