Back to School

It’s just around the corner

My name is Ren, and I live at the Children’s Home. I attend the school on campus, Legacy Scholars Academy, and it has really saved me academically. And it’s because of the support that we receive from friends like you that makes it possible for children like me to get that help. Before I came to the Children’s Home, my grades were really poor. That was mostly because I was not attending school on a regular basis. In fact, my grades were mostly C’s, D’s, and F’s.

This is me in Yearbook & Journalism class

The teachers at Legacy Scholars Academy gave me the extra help I needed to get back on track, and now I’m making straight A’s. One of my favorite classes is Yearbook & Journalism because I get to do a lot of hands-on research and writing. My other favorite class is Science, partly because I’ve always been interested in it, and partly because my teacher is really funny.

As the summer is winding down, the next school year is just around the corner. I’ll be starting my senior year at Legacy Scholars Academy, and I’ll be participating in a dual enrollment program at Daytona State College. Your generous gift today will help to make sure that I and all the other children here have the supplies we need to be successful in the coming school year.

With your help, I plan to finish my senior year and graduate next May, then attend Daytona State College. Ultimately I would like to become an English teacher and oversee the Yearbook Club in a middle school or high school!

Thank you again for your gift today!

Please consider making a gift to the Florida United Methodist Children’s Home today to help
support the transformational healing and educational needs for our children during this new school year. With your help, they can begin to feel whole again!
