Our children are scholars, musicians, athletes, artists, activists, creatives, builders, chefs, explorers, and challengers. They have good and bad days, weeks, and, sometimes, years. We have students who hunger for knowledge, inspiration, acceptance, kindness, love, and, in some cases, food. Some want to be invisible, some simply want to blend in, and others seek the limelight. No matter who they are when they first walk through the doors of their schools, the adults in their community must make sure ALL students leave happy, confident, inspired, and prepared for life after high school.

For those who are parents and/or educators, we know how difficult this can be for students. Here is an ever-growing list of what District 7 students deserve to fulfill their hopes and dreams.
