Ms. Rachel from Whitestone NY is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Self-Esteem Builders

Help me give my students a week of self-esteem building. The bracelets will be given to students to keep and remind them of their strengths and role in their community.

My Students

My students are dedicated and resilient. They are passionate and ask questions. They do not accept the status quo. When they find their voice, my students have life-changing things to say. They are future leaders, future friends, future support systems.

My Project

We will be running programming with our students for Respect for All week. During these programs, students will be working on building their self-awareness, leadership skills and self-esteem.

The boxes will be filled with compliments for each student, given by their peers.

Students will each receive a bracelet to remind them of their experience, their ability to be present and in the moment.

Each student will receive one of each item to take home with them, to remind them of their strengths and their importance within the community. By providing each student with these items, they will gain a sense of belonging and camaraderie with their peers.
