My Students

Our school is made up of an amazing mix of diverse students from many backgrounds, experiences and cultures. We have close to 800 students enrolled in our school. These students range from k4-5th grade. We have a 59% white, 25% African American, and 8% Hispanic population. Over 52% of our population in on free or reduced lunch. Our students are amazing kids who long to reach higher levels of learning and experience. Many are lacking the home structure and experience needed to compete with their peers in the school setting.

Our students work hard in and out of the classroom.

While parent support is there with some students, it is lacking with so many. We are working diligently as teachers to push our students further than even they feel is possible.

With an ever growing school due to community growth, we work tirelessly to revitalize our programs, outreach, and incentives to these students.

My Project

These materials will be used by students to enhance their play experience while outside. We currently do not have toys for the students to use when playing outside. These will allow students to grow as learners while working together to build health and wellness. Jump ropes, balls, and games will enhance play.

Making play exciting, build team skills, burns energy, and allows students to create a healthier lifestyle.

Students will develop lifelong skills and a love for the game because of the new and exciting equipment. Students will no longer spend their free time standing around in the hot sun.
