I work at a STEM magnet middle school in Indiana. This means that my students chose to come to our school to learn more about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
My 7th and 8th graders come from all around the city to form a community where we focus on our core values of rigor, community, relationships, and drive.
My students come from diverse cultures and experiences, and some overcome significant obstacles to succeed at our school. In their two short years with us, they come in as young pre-teens and develop into teenagers prepared to flourish in high school!
We are requesting a Cricut machine, a heat press, and the necessary accessories to be able to create our own t-shirts in house to celebrate our students' achievements! By having all of the materials in our building, we can customize each shirt for the individual students. Our students love having this recognition and it falls in line perfectly with our school's Positive Behaviors System of Interventions (PBIS) work! We would love to create shirts for students who exemplify the Harshman Way of being motivated, empathetic, accountable, and respectful. We would also love to acknowledge specific achievements like Honor Roll and Perfect Attendance.
