Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our school is a Title I school located in inner city San Diego. The majority of our students live in the neighborhood, but we also have parents who bring their children on the city bus to attend our school.
We provide free breakfast for our students and the children in our neighborhood.
We also provide free lunch to each student enrolled. We also provide weekend food backpacks for at-risk students. The food is child-friendly, nutritious, nonperishable, and easy to prepare and eat.
Our families are often immigrants from nearby Mexico, but we also have families from Tanzania, Laos, Thailand, Samoa, Somalia, Sudan, and Ethiopia. A high percentage of our students are English language learners and will be the first generation to attend college in their family.
My students are mostly beginner and emergent readers, teaching them to enjoy reading is an everyday chore.
So making reading fun and comfortable is my goal to keep them reading so that they can develop a love for reading.
Many students do not have books in the home or have few, so when they come to school they look forward to challenge of finding and enjoying a book just right for them. This comfy seating will motivate them to go to the library individually or as a team and find joy in reading. Help me create the ultimate reading center with cozy comfortable seating.
