My Students

We are a small rural community. More than three-quarters of our student population comes from low economically disadvantaged homes.

The students in this school need the opportunities to be successful and shine.

We are striving to bridge gaps for the high population of at-risk students at our school. Our student engagement, achievement, and motivation are enhanced through the integration of technology. We are very proud to be a STEM academy. We strive to engage our student and encourage high standards and success without limits. When students are excited about learning they are more successful.

My Project

We would like to have a class set of the Novel Hoot by Carl Hiaasen.

My students love to read, and have chosen Hoot to learn about the importance of preserving habitats.

They will read the novel about kids who try to save "a colony of burrowing owls." The students will read the novel discuss the topic and learn important reading and language skills along the way. They will then create a project to go along with the book and present to other classed to raise awareness of this important cause. This project will be an important environmental learning experience for them.
