My Students

My students are part of our high school's inaugural Early College program. Many of these students need encouragement to reach their academic potential, are first generation college, or come from homes of financial need.

Our Early College cohort consists of 50 students who strive to make the most of their high school experience.

My Project

The games that I am requesting will be used to build a sense of community amongst our Early College students. We know that our students need a break from time to time (and teachers too!). School can be fun & there are many memories to be made in high school!

These games will encourage students to put down their technology, work with their peers, and laugh with each other.

Our primary goal for our Early College program is that students feel a sense of community, a sense of family, within our larger school. These games are a simple way to provide a comfortable, communal environment.
