Our students are unique and driven. Even though they come from a variety of backgrounds we speak positive things into each of their lives and expect them to accomplish great things. Our Title I elementary school is family knit, and we try our best to be there for each other and help where we can. Families at our school may not have much, but they do have a school and community that cares. It’s all about working towards a goal.
I so badly desire for my students to be prepared for Middle School. And one of the biggest challenges they will face is opening a locker. I spoke with teachers and counselors at our local Middle Schools and they all said that organization and opening lockers are the biggest things rising 6th graders struggle with.
“I have seen students crying at their lockers because it was too much for them.”
I had one middle school teacher share that with me, and it was painful to hear. One of my first projects on Donors Choose was locks for my 5th grade students. This project was amazing, and the teachers loved it!! But I knew I was still not making the biggest impact with this project considering I could only enter their classrooms once a month. Having this stationary locker means that I can schedule teachers by the week, and they can select students to practice on the locker each lunch period. This takes so much weight off of me, and I can also continue going into their classrooms with the individual locks to help students that way as well. Your donation means success for my students, and we appreciate every donation. Thank you for helping me get my students prepared. You are certainly amazing!
