My students attend school in one of the poorest cities in California. A Title I school, nestled in the rural Central Valley, the majority of our students are English language learners and qualify for free/reduced-price lunch. The majority of our students have parents who work in agriculture. Despite their socioeconomic challenges, our students are humble, genuine, polite, and outgoing. This is what makes them special.
Despite our challenges, we were recognized as a School-To-Watch in 2018.
We have spent countless hours preparing our students for the challenges they will face as they enter each phase of their lives.
I have a club on campus called Community Leaders. We find ways to help our community. We recently had a sock and winter clothing drive for the homeless. We have also created commercials for our weekly newscast that promotes recycling awareness. For this project I am asking for hand wipes, deodorant, mouthwash, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and lotion.
We are going to put these items together as a kit and hand them out to the homeless in our town.
It is estimated that there are 30 homeless people in our town. This is a project will hopefully teach my students the importance of helping someone in need. I know my students would be very excited about being able to hand out these items. We hope you find worthy of being funded. Thank you.
