Last Week of School

It is June and we are wrapping up the Dream Project for the year

On June 8, from 12:30-1:00 at John Muir Middle School, in front of a student body of 2,000, students will be sharing what they have learned about these goals and what steps they have taken, big and small, to achieve them. Several of the students will also be performing a collaborative Dream Project song on stage with singer/performers Gina Rene, Rich, and Gagnez, a former gang member who now promotes peace and has become an inspiration to the Dream Project students.

These children are learning that they have the power to make a difference. One particularly angry boy was shoved violently up against the lockers by another boy when he exited class last week. Most of the other students scrambled in fear of a fight, but the first boy turned to walk away. When his antagonizer relentlessly taunted him, he said, “Dude, I’m not going to fight you. I’m in the Dream Project. I don’t do that anymore,” and he walked away.

Universal Education-by Carlos Rojo

One of the things I love most about doing the Dream Project is when students learn about the fact that there are so many young people their age that are denied an education either because they are poor or are female. Learning that education is a privilege gives the students an undeniable appreciation for school.

Check out this poem by Carlos Rojo from Franklin High School (Mrs. Conde's class):
