My Students

My students come from an economically disadvantaged background but still strive to try their very best in their academics. This is reflected in the school's state ratings where we received six academic stars for the past two years. Even though they are economically disadvantaged, these students are very humble and help out others in need. We have very wonderful students.

The graduation rate as students continue into high school is not very high and research shows that knitting helps increase critical thinking skills in students.

Research also shows that students that knit have a higher chance of entering the STEM field.

My Project

We are starting a knitting club at our school and would like to provide knitting looms for all of our students. Our students are economically disadvantaged and we would like to provide them with the opportunity to learn something new and challenging. Research shows that middle school students who knit are more likely to join the STEM fields. We would like to provide the materials necessary to have as many students that wish to learn to knit, the opportunity to do so. We are a group of non-profit educators that want to make a difference in these children's lives.

All products created by the students will be donated to retirements home, hospitals, the Ronald McDonald house, and to other economically disadvantaged students in the district.

Students will need knitting looms as well as hooks to create hats and scarves.
