Celebrate Black Teachers and Students

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

Hello Donors! We are part of an NYC Outward Bound School. We use the EL Education model, which has its roots in Outward Bound. We are a diverse and respectful community committed to developing students and staff who are kind, open-minded, persistent, responsible, and courageous.

With support from peers, staff, families, and school partners, students engage in challenging academic and social experiences that prepare them for college-level learning and full participation in civic life.

Students learn to apply their intellect and effort to benefit themselves and their community.

My Project

As COVID once again directly impacts our community, students are coming to school with the need for more snacks to help them get through the day. Please help us fill our counseling and administrative office with food for kids who need to help their brains stay sharp and focused. Due to COVID, our lunch breaks are limited for students, and the crackers, chips, fruit, and other snacks will help us provide that need a little extra push. As always, we are eternally grateful to our community for helping us deliver the things our students need to be successful!

Mr. Dickson
Grades 9-12
