My Students

The majority of our students come from low socioeconomic homes, but that doesn’t stop them from tryIng to overcome their disadvantages and succeed. They are hard workers just looking for kind heart and helping hand.

Our small rural community is home to various types of kids that always seem to pull together as one.

We are a very small school where different grade levels interact daily with each other. Working with multiple grade levels, I have the ability to effect a number of students during the year.

Please help me try to become a difference maker in their lives.

My Project

We are a very small school where different grade levels interact daily with each other. Working with multiple grade levels, I have the ability to effect a number of students during the year. Please help me try to become a difference maker in their lives. Their hard work and can do attitude deserve this chance. This computer will help my students reach their personal goals they have set for themselves in the classroom.

Our students work very hard to each and every week, but we could use better technology to make sure those efforts are not wasted.

While we are a small school, we have big goals! This computer will allow us to work more efficiently during our limited during class time, as well as give access to video editing to students wanting to play sports at a higher level. Please help our students reach their goals with this project.
