My Students

Our students come to us from a variety of ethnic cultures. We serve a population of students with over 30% coming from low income socioeconomic backgrounds. Our middle school serves over 1200 students. My students include special needs, ESL, and 504 students with a variety of accommodations.

We are Texas Strong, and a community that sticks together and helps our fellow neighbors and friends.

Our students continually give back to the community through service learning projects. They work hard to provide food, clothing, and toys to those in need, to clean up our roads with trash pick up, and to perform music concerts for our local retirement home.

My Project

I want my students to learn about themselves through the foods they eat and learn about. My students learn about diverse cultures and the foods they eat. We learn about foods from all over the world and how different cultures celebrate.

Help my students learn about themselves & other cultures through foods from their ethnic background.

The students will be researching their own origin and creating dishes to share with their class. This is called a potlatch celebration and students will learn about their heritage and share what they have learned.

We research foods for many of our classroom lessons. By the end of the school year, the students have learned more about themselves and their fellow classmates through food and celebrations. Please consider helping my students learn more about their heritage through food.
