My Students

99% of our students are Hispanic, and 65% of them are new to the country, and do not speak the English Language. Our upper classmen who have been in our country their whole life do most of the teaching because they can speak two different languages which is a great asset to me. Many of these kids also have free lunch because most families do not have much income, which is why my school is a Title I school.

My Project

It will allow us to prepare for JROTC physical fitness competitions around the state of Texas.. Our cadets ultimate goal is to be physically ready to compete in a State qualifier in a Raider Competition in San Antonio Texas to have an opportunity to compete in the Raider National Championships in Georgia... My project is to get the physical Fitness equipment we need to help the students/cadets to be successful in JROTC Competitions. This equipment and any other that can help us achieve our goals would be wonderful! Our High School (Thomas Jefferson) in Dallas Texas was hit by a Tornado back in October of 2019.. All teachers and students were displaced and sent to an old middle school to continue the education process but the campus lacks equipment and facilities as a whole that a normal High School would have for success... We were given certificates to purchase equipment that we could use to help our cadets improve and deal with the adjustments we've had to go through... This equipment I have listed could really help in getting our cadets ready for competitions so that's why I'm filling out this request.
