My Students

Our school is a therapeutic day school for students ages 11 to 15. We service students who experience challenges such as poverty, violence, hunger, and mobility. Such factors greatly impact their learning process as well as their ability to engage in the classroom. Our school provides a safe and consistent environment along with both educational and clinical supports. This project is to fulfill the immediate needs of our students in order to support social, emotional and behavioral growth, while being cognizant of the everyday hardships our students face.

My Project

This winter season, our school is prioritizing our students’ warmth, growth and development by supplying them with winter gear (hats, gloves, and fleeces). This project, we are specifically looking to keep our students warm during their commute too and from school. The majority of our students live in poverty and are in homes that have limited supplies. Their families don’t always have the means to purchase essential items which not only hinders our students’ attendance, but their ability to learn and ensure their academic success. The lack of such necessities should not prevent our students from achieving in the classroom. It is vital that their essential needs are met this winter so they can focus on their academic success. Through donations, we are hoping to supply our students with winter gear, so they can focus on their academics, and not be hindered by what they don't have. With that being said, the increased access to these items will aid in the continuity of our thriving learning environment. Please help our amazing students stay warm this winter! Thank You!
