My Students

Our school is a wonderful community of thinkers, communicators, collaborators, and contributors. Each and every member of our faculty work to educate the whole child and improve the school community through various means. One very important example is our 23 raised bed garden beds. Our school garden utilizes all students to help prepare, plant, and maintain. In return, it provides fresh fruits and vegetables for our students and their families throughout the growing season.

Our students originate from at least 15 different countries and speak at least 6 different languages.

Ninety-seven percent of our students receive free or reduced lunch. Our school provides a safe place for students and a wealth of resources for families including clothing, food, and assistance with billing, housing, and medical care. It is an amazing place to grow and learn.

My Project

Our school's garden is a place where our students love to visit during the school day or after hours with their families. This is the perfect location to sit and enjoy a great book.

This Little Free Library would be a wonderful addition to our garden so that our students will be able to pick out a book and enjoy reading in a relaxing place.

In addition, the Little Free Library would serve as a place for students to exchange books they are finished with or add to their collection.
