We are the Scholar Class. Together we work towards bettering our lives, education, and personal self worth. We are a public choice school in Concord, CA. Parents and the community have committed to supporting their child's education by volunteering their time in and outside of the school and making education a priority. There is no question that our students are privileged to have such amazing support and perhaps one of the reasons we are one of the top 20% high performing public schools in California. However, we rely on time and energy, not money.
Our wait lists are getting longer, and our school is becoming more and more diverse, which just widens the students' needs and abilities.
They speak more than twenty-seven languages including English, Spanish, Bulgarian, Russian, Japanese, Tagalog, and Arabic. Along with multicultural and economic diversity, our school is seeing a large increase of students being diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, Autism, and other learning disabilities. Therefore, the need to look outside the box and find ways to meet the needs and abilities of our students is more important today than ever.
My class is currently sitting on a 10 year old rug that has seen better days. While it holds great memories, stories told, and laughter, it also has stains (mud, flu like symptoms, and art projects gone wild)! We have used a carpet cleaner almost every year (this year twice due to an unfortunate event), but the dirt and stains remain.
It's time we were able to sit comfortably on a new and improved carpet.
We love the rug we already have so we are just replacing it. Everyone has a clear defined space to sit, and it's super colorful like our classroom.
