Our first order of business is to secure the funds to renovate our current church building so we can make it more handicap accessible. From there, we plan to renovate our adjoining building, the Parish House, that will serve as the Daycare center. We would like to start with volunteers, and as the program grows hire employees to keep the center running. This will also create jobs in the community. We are currently seeking grant funds that can help us because there is a great need in this area.

Our project will provide hydration stations to our high school students and faculty. Through fundraising efforts, we will replace existing water fountains with water bottle refill stations. This will provide our students and faculty access to clean water and maximize the reduction of plastic waste by using reusable water bottles instead of single use water bottles daily.

Our group is comprised of high school students, so we have firsthand experience with the lack of reproductive health education our school system offers. Part of the problem is that reproductive education is not engaging, not comprehensive, and controlled by individual school and educator values. Our group intends to alleviate this problem by presenting reproductive health information in an engaging, non-biased, and gender-inclusive way. We want the information to be accessible to all. We plan on using zines, small informational booklets, to distribute the information – accompanied by original art by our members. We plan on primarily distributing these zines in middle and elementary schools in our community. We also plan on making these zines available at other places in our community that youth frequent.

Our campaign is focused on bringing speech and debate activities to under-served populations. By working with the DC library system, we are able to host classes at community locations that are central areas for many students in the community. We teach 1 class per week (roughly 8 classes of instruction per semester). This all culminates in a competition where students get to test their wits against their peers from all over the country.

By having students engage in creating their school garden, we as educators are not only fostering critical thinking and leadership skills in them, but we are promoting collaboration, stewardship, and compassion among a future generation of leaders. Our project will begin as soon as classes resume (August 19th, 2019) and will consist of students designing, building, planting, and diligently and consistently caring for the garden. Students will also sharpen their observation, writing and communication skills, by illustrating, recording, taking pictures, and keeping a journal of this project-based learning experience. Students will be hosting assemblies throughout the year, to teach other students and members of their community about the importance of learning about and preserving our natural resources; this will enhance their oral communication and public speaking skills.

During the summer months, I will collect monarch eggs in my pollinator and milkweed gardens at home. I will raise and release the monarchs back into my garden and continue to collect eggs from the next generation. I will take caterpillars to my school and teach my students about their life cycle, migratory patterns, habitat destruction, deforestation, and ways they can help the monarchs. We will release the butterflies at school! I have been doing similar activities in my classroom for the past few years and would like to take this project a step further by becoming Roots and Shoots official!

Once a week students from the National Honor Society at a local high school will go over and complete guided reading for students who are in the bottom quartile group at a local elementary school. Guided reading is small-group reading instruction designed to provide differentiated teaching that supports students in developing reading proficiency'. The small group model allows students to be taught in a way that is intended to be more focused on their specific needs, accelerating their progress.
