Goal

To provide a sense of community and belonging within our student body. Students learn better when they feel connected to their friends and a larger school community. We want all students to feel welcomed and safe at Oakridge Middle School.  

 

What will be done with my students

Students will:
-receive an invitation to come to a designated lunch gathering room for new students or students who may not have someone to sit with
-Student Ambassadors will provide school tours to incoming new students.
-Brainstorm and initiate projects schoolwide and in the community that exemplify kindness.
-Reach out to students who appear isolated or alone during lunch. There is a designated We Dine Together lunch area where anyone is welcome to come to.
Staff will:
-identify and invite new students to a pizza luncheon to meet new faces and see that there are other new students just like them.
 

 

Benefits to my students

The students will be able to:
-Make connections with peers they otherwise may not interact with
-Create a positive social atmosphere on our campus
-Have a safe haven to go without fear or rejection

This club creates friendships and belonging. It also gives our students who like to be "helpers" a chance to utilize their skills.  

 

Budget Narrative

I plan to have pizzas during our lunch meetings with ambassadors and also for our new student luncheons.
I plan to order t-shirts for all We Dine Members ($8-10/shirt) to promote unity
The We Dine together lunch room is a place for students to come and play games/puzzles.
We will use supplies to create kindness projects for the school.
