My Students

Our school is a safe haven, a place where kids can work toward a common goal. Our students need somewhere safe to be, a place off of the tough, local streets. Kids learn commitment, teamwork, and pride, as well as academic skills.

I am the 7-12 Chorus teacher, as well as the assistant marching band director and the K-12 Gifted teacher.

Our students are vibrant and love to be the center of attention. All of the students in our school receive free breakfast and lunch, and there are after-school activities that serve extra meals so kids don't go hungry.

However, our budget is non-existent. Our building is old and hasn't been updated much since it was originally built in the early 1900s. Sounds like a great place for modern learners, right?

My Project

Kids who live in the city don't always have the opportunity to see how plants grow. I am asking for 2 Aerogarden systems and the accompanying seed sets so that my Gifted students can watch how seeds germinate and become beautiful flowers. I have also requested mushroom logs so that my kids can watch how mushrooms grow in other places then in the grocery store. This is something different then my kids have seen before, so I think they're going to be really excited to watch these plants come to life (literally) right before their eyes. Thanks in advance for your donations to this project!
