My Students

In the beautiful mountains of eastern Tennessee, you will find one of the best-kept secrets around, our school. We are a small, rural, Title I school. Our community is strong and our students are full of potential. Our school is a kindergarten through 8th grade school with 145 students. We take pride in creating a safe, inviting environment for our students and their parents.

The focus of our school is the children.

Our staff works together to ensure that every child feels important. Our school really is a family and a safe place to land for each and every student.

My Project

I would like these caps and gowns for my students to give them the graduation they have been looking forward to. In our community, Kindergarten graduation is a rite of passage.

These caps and gowns will serve as keepsakes for these parents when their children are grown.

Our community is a strong, united one. I would like to help the parents by getting these items donated for our children. This will help to ease the financial burden on the parents, especially during the pandemic.

I cannot wait to see how these sweet children look in their caps and gowns. These will also be used in their graduation photos so that this time can be remembered forever.
