My Students

Hi! Thank you for your support and assistance in helping me to provide quality education to our students. We are a Title I school with over 90% of our students on Free or Reduced Lunch.

We have a 94% graduation rate and 100% ESE graduation rate!

Our teachers and students work hard to excel and we know that hard work and dedication is the key to success.

With help from donors like yourself, we are able to accomplish our learning goals and challenge ourselves in a highly rigorous curriculum.

My Project

My students need a class set of Pat Frank's "Alas, Babylon." Students will use the novel to read, discuss, and analyze. Students will use the concepts and themes from the novel to write an argumentative essay regarding morality. The novels will also be used to carry over into other English classes such as AP English Literature and English IV Honors.

Our selection of class sets of novels is very limited and teachers are often on a waiting list to use novels with their classes.

Increasing the selection with novels from which the students may choose to read will greatly impact their education. Providing high-level texts for students to read will impact their reading level, and it will be reflected in their standardized test scores.
