Our student motto is "Undefeated". For years a large portion of our community has looked at our students as lacking dreams, goals, motivation to succeed. They are working very hard to change that perception.
For many they could be the first ones going to college.
60% of our student population receives free/reduced fees. Many come from single family homes and too many are homeless. We have a diverse student population, while the majority is white, we also have African American, Hispanic, Vietnamese and other nationalities enrolled.
In addition many of students struggle with childhood traumas and mental illness that makes it very hard to engage them in learning. But it is through these struggles that our students try to embody the "Undefeated" attitude.
The six motions sensors will be used on a regular basis in our math classes. We have been using graphing calculators for the past six years, but with your donation, the classes will be able to make a connection to what we are doing in stead of just reading it from a book. The Common Core mathematics standards give students real-world problems that require technology.
Giving low-income students access to new technology will help to get them engaged and invested in their educational future.
These motion sensors will allow students to make real world connections and help them to see future possibilities.
