My Students

My school is located just outside the city limits of St. Louis, MO. Students come from a very diverse background of economics and ethnicity. They are always eager to learn and try new things. Some of them have significant trauma at home and school is a safe, fun place to be. All students can get a free breakfast, lunch, and lots of love and learning at school. They sometimes need help with supplies, as their families struggle with providing them. With added support, they are able to learn more.

My Project

If this project is funded the students will no longer have to share headphones! They will be happy to have their own pair and will be able to use them to work on computers to further their learning.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.

Students will be able to simply focus on the academic material at hand, and not whether their materials are going to work or not. Plus in this technology literate world, any interaction with updated technology will increase their literacy as well as their desire to learn and use the new technology!
