My Students

My students come from an amazing community. The school is nestled in between duplexes, houses, and apartments. We are a community of students that are trying to improve themselves and help their families at the same time. We are a Title 1 school with 100% free breakfast and lunch. Our students want to come to school.

As the School Counselor I would like to help support my students and their families through these unprecedented times with supplies for home.

My students will need support with supplies to fulfill their dreams to further themselves within the future. The expansion of their minds and growth mindset through writing, math, reading can be expanded with the utilization of color and scissors. The acknowledgment that one can make a mistake and erase it and then fix it with a pencil that is sharpened with his own hands and not dull.

My Project

These supplies will help craft the future of each and every student l as they move on with academic and social/emotional growth mind set. Through these supplies, teachers will be able to expand the use of the computer so that our students are not limited, but may use their imaginations as well.

The pencils and crayons will help students to explore the world of learning and adventure.

Students will be able to utilize not only what the their teachers present to them, but their own imaginations through the use of these wonderful supplies that you are providing to them.
