My Students

Our students are diverse. Most are Latino, but we also serve Filipinos, Chinese, and African Americans. Many students are English Language Learners and, hopefully, will be the first member of their family to attend college. Although the school's neighborhood, the Mission District, is increasingly trendy, many of our students struggle with safety issues such as assaults, prostitution and burglaries. Because of increasing rents, some students worry about housing security and must have jobs.

Besides neighborhood pressures, our Wellness Center reports that many students have issues around substance abuse and sexual activity.

These factors contribute to academic struggles. But that is not the whole story. Our library is regularly filled with students reading, doing homework, and being responsible students. Furthermore, our students demonstrate resilience and compassion every day. We are proud of our many graduates who have gone on to universities and who are transforming challenging circumstances into determined successes.

My Project

Our school library program prides itself on providing just what our students need and want. This project is designed with that goal in mind: we are requesting healthy snacks to keep our students strong all school day long as well as some of their favorite, fun books that they have requested but we do not yet have in our inventory. The picture frame is for a senior class portrait. This project includes items that will help these young people feel more supported at school. Being a teenager can mean getting hungry during the school day and wanting to read a fun book, please help meet their needs.
