As a school community, we strive to give each student an equal opportunity to achieve their full potential within the STEM program regardless of their personal backgrounds or abilities. This is why it is essential for this program to create and maintain a space were students feel safe, included, and have the ability to learn social emotional skills that will aid them throughout the remainder of their lives and educational journeys. We strive to be a leader in educating students about mental, social, and emotional health. For this reason, we will include programs such as Human Animal Bond in Tennessee (H.A.B.I.T), Restorative Practices, and Social Emotional Learning Programs. The space being funded will be utilized as a one-on-one space for students to interact with the Restorative Interventionist or Social Worker to address any emotional or community resource needs. Students will also have regular access to H.A.B.I.T services through H.A.B.I.T Volunteers who generously give their time to bring their animals to the school.
Generate public awareness, fundraising and advocacy campaigns by working and/or volunteering my time, skills and energy in tandem with leading non-profit organizations.

This is an on-going project, but we wanted it to be our Community Service for December and January. The mom of one of my students is a sailor on the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower Aircraft Carrier. In addition to our K 9 donation, we are writing letters to Ms. Walcott, her sailor friends and sending a large care package for Christmas. These activities will span during December 2017 and January 2018.
Our project will help dogs and cats find homes, it will also help bring awareness to those who do not know how much the hurricane destroyed. We will raise money from our neighbors and use that to buy supplies on amazon from their wish list. Then we will drive down to Dickinson and deliver the supplies and in the meantime take pictures of the dogs and cats and post them on social media.
Our project will improve the health of the animals, and as a result, their caretakers in our community. If we receive the grant, out club will assemble animal care kits that will be at our local Cupboard and Closet for the public to take as needed.
