My Students

Roberto Clemente Leadership Academy for Global awareness services over 500 kids. We are located in Connecticut. Our middle school classroom is made up of a diverse group of students who come from many different backgrounds. Despite the hardships that they face on a daily basis they come to school excited and eager to learn. Students learn best when they are engaged in hands-on learning and real-world application. We appreciate any donation you can make big or small and we thank you for considering donating to our class!!

My Project

8th-grade students are embarking on carrying out their community service project. What better way to leave a lasting impression than to focus on the kids at our school.

Teaching kindness is something everyone can use a little more in their life.

By purchasing the book "The Jelly Donut Difference" students will model fluent reading by reading to students in grades Kindergarten through fourth grade.

With the purchase of the construction paper and glue sticks, students will create take-away projects that will remind them to be kind. This is something that every student will be able to take with them to remind them over the summer to be kind.
