My Students

Who are our students? They are future doctors, lawyers, teachers, change-makers, engineers, scientists, mathematicians, activists, or whatever path they choose for success. They work hard, enjoy learning, and see the future as theirs to conquer!


Kind! Caring! Hard-Working! Bright! This is how I describe our student body. Our students are ready to change the world and I know that one day they will! Recently, a group of students approached me with one request, "Please help us make our school a greener more earth-friendly environment". That's how our students think! They have ideas, goals, and passions to improve the world around us. I want to help them achieve those goals.

My Project

We are turning our school green! We have an empty courtyard and environmentally passionate students who want to turn this unused space into an outdoor classroom full of nature! Students will be actively involved in planning a green area complete with opportunities to engage with nature. Imagine a space designed by kids for kids, complete with gardens, plants, compost bins, benches made from recycled material, recycled art, and so much more! Students will be growing plants from seeds, creating compost from food scraps, and creating materials needed to enrich this space for learning. We are turning the world green, one step at a time!
