THE STORY:

http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/Parents-Concerned-After-Videos-Show-Series-of-Fights-at-Suburban-High-School-368228281.htmlHi Everyone, My name is Janielle. I'm currently in 8th grade and eagerly awaiting starting high school next year. I was supposed to start my high school career in my neighborhood high school but the school made national news a few months ago because of the mob style fights that take place on a daily basis there. I'm very afraid to go to that school. As if high school is not scary enough, the fact that I would have to learn how to fight does not sit well with me. About a year ago, I was being bullied. I went to an inpatient and outpatient therapy program for depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, and self injury. My life has gotten better since then; I've transferred and I have awesome friends. Having said that, I believe if I go to my neighborhood high school, I might revert to my old habits. I'm an honor roll student and my mom is a single parent who can't afford to move right now, especially since she is planning to have a surgery this summer and will be off work for 2-3 months.So, she had this awesome idea to have me to take a placement test for a private school not too far from our house. We just received my acceptance letter yesterday and I placed above average in all of the subject areas. Unfortunately, one year at this school is $10,400 so we are asking for half a years tuition plus registration and book fees. I promise to keep my grades up and to update all of you every grading period. I would like to stay in Illinois with my mom because she said if she can't afford the full tuition, I would have to move to Arizona with my aunt and grandma and spend the next four years thousands of miles away from my mother. As much as I love them, I really want to stay with my mom. Please help us so that my mom and I are able to stay together. No donation is too small! However, the minimum amount that this site will accept is $10!It all adds up! If you're unable to donate at this time, please post this link to your social media pages. Text it to your friends, family and coworkers, or email this link to any and everybody! We really need your help for the 2016-2017 school year! This was a last minute attempt to keep us together and was unplanned. We will not contact you yearly to help with tuition! We've just had a series of unfortunate events to occur and just need a little help to get the ball rolling! Please pray for us!
