Hooray! This project is fully funded
I am a second year teacher in a Title I school. Most of my students are English Language Learners and live in poverty. All of our students receive free lunch and breakfast. The crime rate in our district is 52% higher than the national average. Despite my students' hardships, they come to school each day to ready learn.
I am starting a cheerleading team for the 4th and 5th graders.
This would allow students to interact with the community, experience teamwork, and leadership qualities. Our goal is that students will take the qualities they learn through cheerleading and apply them to everyday life skills.
We are hopeful we can make an impact on the poverty level and crime rate by creating a sense of community. We want students to use the qualities they learn and apply them to their future endeavors. Most of the students do not have the opportunity to experience extra-curricular activities due financial burden. Our school does not have the funding to provide uniforms for students. Given the high poverty rate, their families are unable to spend money on extra-curricular activities. We are asking for donations for our Dragons to experience what other districts can.
By donating to our cheerleading team, our team will be able to have pom poms for our events. We will be able to show our school pride! Our students will learn responsibility by taking care of the pom poms! We will also reuse them for years to come. Our students are very excited about cheerleading and would be thrilled to have the opportunity to have real pom poms to go with their outfits like other schools are able to do. We cannot ask students to donate money to cheerleading since we are a Title I school, so we are depending on all donations to sponsor our cheerleading team.
