My Students

Our Title I school is full of wonderful students that come from all walks of life. Many of them participate in the free and reduced-price breakfast and lunch program. Even though we have students that have a difficult time bringing the basic supplies to school, they come to school ready and eager to learn.

Our students enter the doors of our colorful school knowing that the staff is prepared to help them reach their potential of being college and career ready.

My Project

Beginning in January our students will be able to take home their Chromebooks. We are all very excited that our students will have access to sites and apps at home that we use in class. We have several students that are in need of a sturdy backpack for their Chromebook and other school supplies.

With our area being impacted by Hurricane Florence and Hurricane Michael, we have families in our county that had severe damage to their homes or have been displaced completely.

We want to have these sturdy backpacks for our students that will need one to transport their Chromebook back and forth from home to school daily. We also want to make sure we have some on hand for any new students that enter our welcoming doors.

This project is very important. Having gone through two stressful and scary hurricanes, we want to make sure our students do not have to stress over how they are going to take their Chromebook back and forth. Thank you for believing in this project and helping to bring new sturdy backpacks to our students.
