My Students

Our students are amazing, smart, strong, and resilient. Each student comes with vastly different experiences, cultures, and backgrounds. Our school has a large population of second language learners and integrated special education learners, so many students require language support or have special needs. All students at our school receive free breakfast and lunch each day.

Our students still feel the impacts of Hurricane Irma.

Our school is a rural school, whose students live in the eye-wall path of Irma. Many homes in our area sustained significant damage. Over four months later, blue roofs are the normal sight and debris is sometimes left because homeowners do not have the ability to remove it themselves. Damaged homes have left some of our students living on bare floors or without drywall, and some students are still displaced due to the damage or loss of their home. Wait lists for repairs are months long, and students are trying to make sense of their new normal. We are also seeing an influx of displaced students from other areas where homes were completely destroyed.

My Project

With over 1,000 students, getting everyone up and moving every day presents a challenge when there is not enough equipment to go around. Our influx of new students in sports programs also creates new needs for our school. Our Run Club needs a run clock to help students time their own laps, and a portable PA system to be able to communicate effectively to the large group of students. Cheer club needs enough pom poms to go around. Basketball club is in need of basketballs to be able to allow more students to participate, and recess is in need of a new soccer goal and enough soccer balls to go around. These items will ensure our athletic department has the supplies they need to allow all students to participate.

We want to help our students create and maintain physical fitness routines that will increase their physical and mental health.

Many students have had changes in routines due to the effects of Irma. Our students will use this equipment to create an outlet for escape from the effects of Hurricane Irma. These materials will make a huge impact in the lives of our students as they move forward after Irma. Please help us create a new, healthier normal in the lives of our students.
