My Students

My school is extremely small. We only have about 30 students enrolled, which means our funding is considerably less than a typical school. We are an alternative program and cater to students in middle and high school. Students are able to receive more of an individualized education that focuses on their strengths while developing their weaknesses.

With the small, loving environment they receive from the staff at our school, students are able to taste and savor success.

We come together to help make learning as exciting as possible for our students and do our best to bring them together as well.

We all love to use interactive lessons to help bring out the best in our kiddos. However, our students often lack the basic materials to make it through the schools day. We lack funding to supply them through the school system so often times teachers are spending their own money. We do it because we want our students to succeed but it's sometimes a struggle.

I teach more than one grade level during a class period. Each of my students has a unique plan that matches his or her class and ability level.

My Project

Our school needs fleece jackets in a variety of sizes. We distribute jackets to each of our students when they are referred to our school. These jackets stay in their lockers and are washed regularly. This is done to streamline the way our kids look and keep them in uniform without the need for conflict over branding and such.

However, our current supply of jackets is worn out, many have holes and rips and the zippers are broken.

These new jackets would help keep our kids in uniform and warm in class without them having to worry about whether their size will be in working order.
