My students need garment racks and suit jacket hangers to hold their clothing for our Men Who Read program!
At my school, Every Student Counts and Every Moment Matters!
Poverty and homelessness are situations our students struggle with daily.
It is our goal to give them amazing experiences that they may not otherwise have.
Our students come to school each and every day ready to take on the world and to learn, challenging themselves to be better than they were the day before!
As an educator, I consider it one of my life's greatest blessings to be able to work alongside the best student scholars and educators in the country! MES is committed to providing its students with all of the resources that are needed to engage students in rigorous, dynamic and inspirational instructional activities. There may be times when we do not have what we need, but we have taken on the "We can't yet...," not a "We can't..." attitude. Maybe we currently cannot provide our students with all of the most innovative technology available, maybe we currently do not have a 1,000+ book library of high-interest books in every classroom, but soon we will! All of the resources we want to provide to our students are available to us through the magic of DonorsChoose.org!
Dressing up is always a struggle for our male students. In many instances, our principal has allowed them to choose one of his personal ties to wear on special days. We would love all students to have access to a tie and blazer on our Men Who Read days. We need hangers and garment racks to hang these clothing items on when we start this new initiative! It is important that boys' male role models read. If Dad, Grandpa, or Uncles are never seen reading, then a boy will grow up to believe that men do not read, but if a boy grows up seeing the men in his life reading, even if it is a magazine or a newspaper, then he will grow up knowing that men read, too. This is why we have taken on the challenge of seeking professional men in the city to come read with male students. Monthly, all of our boys will meet to hear a guest male reader from the community. Many local celebrities, pastors and college athletes have volunteered to assist us to raise test scores of male students, who nationally trail behind their female counterparts in reading. Help make these days more powerful by dressing our gentlemen appropriately!
When we are able to dress the part, our self esteem, confidence and overall positive self image are boosted!
We want our students who struggle with poverty and homelessness to be able to have an experience that they may not otherwise be able to have. All students deserve to know what it's like to dress for success!
When this project is fully funded, in addition to a project for dress blazers, our gentlemen will be able to dress the part. Thank you for your support of our amazing students!
