My Students

Our school is built on diversity from the students we teach to the the topics that are explored in our inquiry-based classrooms. We are honored to serve a population of students who come from many countries, speak several languages, and learn in many different ways. Our school is founded on principals that make our students successful, inside and outside of the classroom, for the extent of their lives. Through the implementation of IB Learner Profile traits and quality content instruction, our students are equipped with the 21st century skills needed in our world today.

My Project

Students need essential care items in order to be most successful in school and life. Sometimes, those items are hard to come by. It is important that these items, such as deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, chap stick, and soap, are readily accessible to students in need. This project will make the acquisition of these everyday products readily available to students in our school. It is important that we start the school year off with a supply of these items to provide to students in advance, and in times of need throughout the school year. Thank you for your support in advance!
