My Students

My students are vibrant. My students are energetic. My students are diverse. They are passionate, enduring, and have the future at their fingertips. My students contribute to their school and community, but they are also at a disadvantage.

Most of my students come from broken and/or poverty-stricken homes.

The school hosts an over 90% population that is on free or reduced-price lunch making us a Title I school. Despite the economic state of many of our students, they show us on a daily, how motivated they are. They want to provide a better life for themselves, and they are working hard to try to get there; they want to develop life skills that will allow them to move forward in life.

My Project

Throughout the years, the Special Olympics program has been growing at our school at a great rate. This has had such a positive impact in not only our Special Olympics athletes but those at the school have truly been supportive of the athletes. That is why we are starting up a Unified Special Olympics team where students with intellectual disabilities compete alongside partners without intellectual disabilities.

We need help building this team.

We want to make sure that the athletes have all the proper equipment afforded to non-Special Olympics teams. Our team wants to stand out and the Lil Princess Girls Nylon Dance Duffle Bag will help them do that. The Capezio Women's Low Rise Boy Cut Short will also make sure that their uniforms fit correctly, allowing them to perform well.
