My Students

Our school demographic is roughly 99% African American, 0.5% Hispanic, and 0.5% White of our students 96% are coming from low-income families with a 20.1% mobility rate.

Our school's vision is to produce lifelong learners!

We create these learners by creating positive relationships with our students and rigor within our classroom. Our staff works as a community to make sure we can create these lifelong learners and promote positive learning all throughout the year. As we say "We rise to SOAR"!

My Project

My students need supplies to soar into next school year. We need the supplies to help my students feel excited and ready to come to school. With the pencils they can continue to improve on their writing. With the stools they are able to sit in a classroom that promotes flexible seating. The new crayons, markers, and colored pencils will allow them to draw and tell stories about their lives.

All of these materials will help to create an environment that loves learning and working together.

The supplies you donate will give my students the opportunity to enjoy coming to school each and every day. All of these supplies will help us create an environment that is positive and helps us soar into a great school year!
