You’re learning. You’re accomplishing everything.
— Cameron, student at Harrison Park School
The Shadow Project is awesome. It helps kids in special ed realize they have what it takes to succeed. I started in The Shadow Project at Duniway School in 2nd grade and recently graduated from college. It really made a difference in my life! –Alex Scattarella
Sharing Their Accomplishments
We are proud of the wonderful
strides students in The Shadow Project are making to meet their academic and social goals. At Harrison Park in Southeast Portland, Shannon Cooper’s 60 hard-working students are becoming enthusiastic readers and writers who enjoy school, turn in homework and take the opportunity to give to others. “Not only are my students developing strong a work ethic, they’re developing empathy and caring for each other,” says Shannon. “And they wanted to say thank you.”

I am proud of myself because I'm doing better in class and staying focused. I used to have a hard time with my attitude but I'm doing better now. I'm 13 and I have done the Shadow Project since I was six. The Shadow Project is wonderful. I hope to be like you guys and help kids out someday. Sincerely, Fredy
