My Students

The students at my school are extremely dedicated and strive to achieve in each and every way. As you walk through our hallways, you hear the voices of the world. We have such an array of diversity that it makes our school very unique and multi-cultural.

Our vision is to prepare every student to be academically successful and socially responsible in an ever-changing and unpredictable world.

We strive to provide a safe learning community dedicated to high expectations for every student.

My Project

Since our school is overcrowded, we have three lunchtime periods and four lunchrooms. Unfortunately, we are short on staff, so only two lunchrooms during each lunch period can go out for recess every other day. The rest of the students stay inside and are bored. We would love to provide students with board games during this time, so they can learn about money management.

These games will provide students who are bored out of there minds ( and no they can not use their cell phones) to learn about finances and math.

We are asking for the game of LIFE, Monopoly, Chess Sets, Pay Day, Jeopardy, Net Worth, Don't Touch My Jewels, Grandpa Beck's Cover Your Assets, and more! Please help some bored teenagers during recess! The lunch aids will appreciate this!
