My Students

Our sixth grade is comprised of 130 amazing students, many of whom come from bilingual households and receive free or reduced price lunch. Thriving in an ocean of opportunity, on last year's end of grade test, the shark team showed remarkable academic growth, regardless of demographics. In fact, several of our learners made grade level proficiency in Language Arts and Math for the first time in several years. We need your assistance as we swim toward the shore of academic success.

My Project

We are seeking your support as we attempt to meet our need of a classroom set of headphones to match our Donor's Choose classroom set of Chromebooks, so that these valuable resources will always be available in our classroom for use with our interactive math software, for research and project development and to enhance the mathematical understanding of our learners.

Our donors have been amazing and have assisted us in getting us through the first phase of our process.

We need thirty (30) headphones to further assist the accomplishment of our goals. We requesting your help in getting what we need so that we may "Hear Our Way" as we move to "Bridge the Achievement Gap".
