My Students

Welcome to our class!

The students at our school are creative, bright, fun, feisty, trailblazers.

While they are full of potential, life sometimes gets in the way. Our students deal with unimaginable obstacles. Purchasing supplies, completing assignments, finding transportation and even getting dressed in the morning causes our 14 to 17 year-olds unnecessary stress.

While these students fight to get to and participate in school everyday, they surprise their teachers with their resilience.

I am here to help. Sometimes all they need is a little bit of support from the teachers and the community.

My Project

Students come to school despite a number of obstacles placed in their way. One of these is their access to polos for school. Our school requires all students to wear polos in their academy colors. Some of our kids have one shirt, do not have washer-dryers at home, and find it difficult to keep up with laundry. Smelly and stained shirts to cause great stress for our students. No student should be distracted from school just because they do not have any shirts to wear! Please help me create a stress free environment for our most needy refugee students by helping us by a stocked uniform closet full of Jerzees Men's Spot Shield Short Sleeve Polo Sport Shirts in all our academy colors.
