My Students

Our Magnet School emphasizes the respect of self and others. Our pedagogy includes discipline and high expectations, as well as activism and compassion. About 60% of our students are African-American, alongside Latino and Asian children. This situation offers unlimited opportunities to learn tolerance and team work, while discovering new perspectives.

The kids know they will be Agents of Change and follow our school motto, "Be the change you want to see in the world." However, our school and our families can't afford the resources we need to support academic knowledge and significantly improve student achievement.

My Project

Free supplies for the classroom are still extremely limited. Classes must do with a certain number of copies, pens, or lined paper per month. What happens when we run out? Well, either families provide or students just wait for the following month.

Your kind donation will help all the kids be efficient and organized: pre-sharpened pencils and folders.

We write so much every day, you wouldn't believe how many times we need to sharpen these pencils! Taking notes during research, calculating, drawing. The folders in different colors help students stay organized: purple for math work, red for writing portfolio, and blue for research. Students will definitely be thankful to you as they'll be able to start their work right away!

Thank you for making a difference!
