My Students

My students are from a very small rural area with many low-income families. With a rural school, most students have to participate in several academic and athletic extracurricular activities to have enough students for a team or project. This can put a financial strain on many of our participants since they are pulled in many directions. However, keeping the kids involved in sports teaches them so many life lessons that help build them to be well-rounded adults later in life.

My Project

Our junior high cheerleaders are in need of backpacks to transport their shoes and other items to and from practices and games. These girls have worked to raise money for uniforms, shoes, poms, and many other items but with a small school district the same people have to purchase fundraising things multiples times a year. These girls also participate in multiple extracurricular activities which can be a financial burden to the families of the cheerleaders. The backpacks are not a complete necessity so we hate to ask the parents for more money even though the uniformity of the girls matching looks very nice in the public.
