Our students come from a low-income area, with more than half qualifying for free or reduced-price lunches.
This environment can produce certain obstacles to education, such as an inability to meet a child's basic needs, working parents who may lack the time or resources to provide academic supports, and a whole slew of other difficulties.
While these challenges exist, they do not deter our students from striving towards goals and succeeding in endeavors.
Through our commitment to developing relationships, building supports, and creating a positive learning environment, I continue to see the gap lessen. Our school does everything it can to support the needs of our children both academically and socially. Our children continue to show scholarship, purpose, and grit and need a classroom that will continue to foster their growth.
I am requesting black t-shirts to use to make and design for our uniforms when we have competitions among other schools and most importantly during our end of year 5K Run!
Incorporating unified team shirts as their uniforms for each student on our running team will allow our students to show off their team-building skills, confidence, and increased running stamina to our families and community during our end of year 5K Run!
They will be so excited to hear we are seeking funding to provide them with "team shirts" too! Thank you so much for considering our Running Team project and for making an impact on our students exercise, health and wellness goals!
