Our students are your typical 12-14 year olds. They will walk the same halls that many of their parents walked. They come from a variety of economic situations. Approximately 40% of our students receive free or reduced-price breakfasts and lunches. We are a neighborhood school where students walk, ride bikes, get dropped off by parents, and even ride a bus.
We have approximately 750 students in the 7th and 8th grades.
These students enter as children and leave as young men and women and we are working to prepare them for that transition as they move on to high school and then into the world.
We are like any other school and any other group of teachers, we hope to make a difference in their lives.
The magnetic mobile whiteboard will allow teachers to hold classes in the media center with all the usual classroom items. With the pandemic, we have found that having students sanitize their hands is mandatory for their safety and the automatic hand sanitizer dispenser will promote this without constant reminders. The book displays will allow us to grab a reader's attention with specific content, and the chess sets will be used to build relationships between students. The heavy-duty shelving unit will not only allow us to get our computers off the floor, but it will also allow for moving them from area to area.
Students want to be engaged and a part of the learning process.
The classroom area of our media center gives us the ability to collaborate and team teach while promoting group work across subject areas. This project will allow students to have more confidence in themselves in an open and safe environment. The items requested are an integral part of achieving that goal.
