My Students

Our school strives to help students become well-rounded citizens by weaving 21st century interdisciplinary themes into our curriculum. These themes include global awareness, financial literacy, civic literacy, health literacy, and environmental literacy.

Our students are curious, kind, creative, and hard-working.

We live in a rural part of the state and many of our students have never traveled on a city bus or airplane.

Our aim is to provide all students access to technology, books, and materials that they might not have at home. Donors Choose and donors like you help us fill in any gaps. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of these special children!

My Project

My students love STEM and STEAM activities!

Your donation will help provide this 3D printer for our media center and our school's 500 students.

From original creations to downloaded reproductions of artifications, the possibilities are endless. They will love seeing the technology in action as we take designs from the computer to objects in our hands.

This printer is especially useful for our media program because of its small footprint and user-friendliness. I asked my older students what they wanted most in a 3D printer and they said they wanted it to be easy to use. This 3D printer is certainly that! It connects via Wi-Fi and is compatible with iPads, computers, or SD cards. It has excellent reviews.

My students are eager to get started in 3D printing! Thank you for your help!
