My Students

Students at my school are diverse, excitable and passionate. They are resilient and not defined by the many socioeconomic challenges in our neighborhoods, nor do they shrink from the rigor of their studies and the high expectations of their teachers. Our diverse students are hungry to learn and explore new technology and expand their understanding of the world.

Our purpose here at OGMS is to foster a positive, safe environment that inspires and challenges our students.

We are resolute in helping our learners reach their full potential and achieve academic and personal success.

My Project

Many OGMS students walk or take public transportation home. Some of them, however, have a tendency to hang out after school rather than going home to an empty house. Some attend our after school academic support group. Others simply enjoy the time to connect and to socialize.

By funding our project, you will be giving art loving kids a safe place to connect with other student artists who share the same passion for drawing and positive self-expression.

Why not give them a chance to express their passion through art and collaboration with a club designed for artistic immersion and fellowship? By giving them art supplies and drawing books, we intend on doing just that.

Having an Art Club is a great way for students to be involved in art throughout the year. When our time with them is limited in the classroom, an art club can serve as a nice supplement for students who can’t get enough drawing. Help us give these students the sketchbooks, drawing books and light boxes to support their pursuit of self-expression.
