My Students

We have a great group of students at our school. We have several economically disadvantaged families, but our students work hard to learn and grow academically. We have been recognized as a reward school for the past two years due to our students' hard work and growth.

My Project

We have a great group of students at our school and we work hard to provide them with the best education possible. It would be great if we could also provide the nicest environment for them to learn and grown in as well. Most of our school desk are over 40 years old or they have been donated by another school when they were able to get new furniture. They are mismatched, falling apart, not the right size, and provide no storage for all of the resources students have to carry around with them every day. They need a place for their books, computer, supplies, and notebooks. Please support our classroom with a donation for us to be able to receive new students desks for our that are so badly needed and will be utilized and appreciated on a daily basis! Thank you!
