My Students

The students served at our school are from very diverse backgrounds. Many of our students are eligible and receive free or reduced-cost lunch and breakfast. Students in grades 9 thru 12 are taught premier leadership and personal growth attributes. Theory, hands-on learning and project-based learning are all critical areas of instruction in the agriscience program. An agriscience lab, greenhouse, raised bed garden provide learning opportunities in our program. Students gain skills that are transferable into post-secondary schooling as well as the workforce.

My Project

The acquisition of requested tools and safety equipment will continue learning opportunities in agriscience. Tools that are often consumable do to excessive use have to be replaced. Using the most current techniques in teaching allows for an easier transition into the workforce. Each of the requested tools is in need of replacement in our agriscience lab. While teaching electrical wiring, we are currently using wire strippers as needle-nose pliers. This acquisition of tools will eliminate this misuse of tools and align with industry standards.

Safety glasses are a must whenever students are in the ag lab, your replacement of older glasses will promote a healthy and safe workplace for our students as they manipulate materials using hand and stationary tools.
