My Students

Every day the second-grade scholars at our school can be heard chanting and stepping from down the hall as they celebrate their African American identity and their academic achievements. Many of these boys strongly connect to stepping, as it has been a positive outlet for them, because it empowers them to create a strong and powerful culture. Every time these boys step, they forget the hardships of living in North Minneapolis and are empowered to be the best they can be, and celebrate not only their culture, but their learning as well.

"I put my B in front of me E whoooo (lean back) my S in front of my T ahhh it looks so good on me, you wish you could be me ahh uhh!

1, 2, 3, (stomping) I put my B in front of my E whooo my S in front of T. (pause) Pause for the picture and don't you forget we are the BEST boys college-bound, too legit to quit, ahoooo."

My Project

My students need access to clean water at all times to boost their learning! Currently, the only access these boys have to water is during lunch, or when we can manage a whole class water break to make the treck to the water fountain.

With brain function and water consumption closely linked, these boys deserve the opportunity to boost their focus and scores by drinking more water.

Let's help these boys with their attention and to have them feel valued with access to cold drinking water right in their classroom. These boys deserve the world, and with your help, we can prove it to them!
