My Students

We are a 90-90 working on the last 90 schools. 99% of our students are minority. 90% of our students are considered "at-risk" due to family income, home life, and their environment. However, the 90% that we are currently lacking is the 90% proficiency.

Students who suffer from low self-esteem, identity issues, and feelings of worthlessness cannot be concerned with words inside of a textbook.

In order for our students to have a vested interest in the curriculum, we as a faculty, staff, and community must first have a vested interest in them.

Every day, we struggle as adults to break the stigma that is associated with success and achievement in our community. For many of our students, there is so much going on outside of school that outweighs what we are doing in school. It is our goal to build a community of students who become self-motivated, who become peer leaders, and who take an interest in being productive members of their school and their communities.

My Project

The cheerleading, track, and cross country team’s have been blessed by benevolent donors to be able to receive kettle bells to aid us in developing our strength and conditioning program at our school. Due to limited spacing in our building, we must keep all of our equipment in the outside locker room, which currently has a broken lock. Therefore, there is a concern about the security of our equipment.

With the purchase of this rack, the school’s cheerleading, track, cross country, and other sports teams will be able to effectively store our equipment in a safe place where the door can be locked.

In this manner, we will not have to worry about our much needed equipment being used without supervision or, even worse, our equipment disappearing.
