My Students

With many students joining us from Puerto Rico, we need extra support and supplying them with materials for them to use. A lot of our students have lost their homes their family members and pets. We need to make them feel like they have a place to be. The students at my school come from a working class neighborhood that is very well integrated. They are every color of the rainbow and come from multiple backgrounds. One thing that they have in common is that many of their families are working multiple jobs and having trouble making ends meet.

Teachers, counselors, and other staff members frequently purchase basic need items for students who are not able to receive them from their families.

This school uses a program of catching students doing the right thing. There is an ongoing conversation about "being a bucket filler" by doing good things. They receive incentive "bucks" for good behavior and deeds.

My Project

My students need new sports equipment to play at recess. With all these new balls the students will be able to play many sports including soccer, kickball, jump ball, and a friendly form of dodgeball, basketball and many other sports. Hoping this will help students focus while they’re learning in the classroom, play time vs. learning time.

New sports balls to stay healthy and active during recess.

Team sports will help make everyone feel like they belong. With all different types of sports balls everyone can be included in any game. This will help improve students teamwork abilities, they will be able to work together as a team. Building teamwork skills will help students get along in the classroom and in other areas. I want my students to be able to work together no matter what they are doing. I think playing sports together will help that.
