My students are 7 and 8-year-old, inner city students. Fifty percent are English Second Language Learners and all of them work hard! We are a family and they are excited to come, learn, and grow. This year, our school goal is to be a model urban school. Each and every day will be spent learning and experiencing new concepts and ideas. Our community is very appreciative of all we do for them and this is one project that must be brought to fruition!
Our inner city school district finds it difficult to compete with surrounding wealthy towns.
Our state is one of the wealthiest in the country; however, our district is also one of the poorest. One hundred percent of our 22,000 students receive free lunch. This is a strong indicator of the economic pressures our families and our students face every day. This year alone we lost social workers, guidance counselors, literacy coaches, and staff. These projects are essential in making up the resources that we are desperately lacking. Thank you in advance for your support!
My students are ready to learn but today I gave out the LAST pair of student headphones! There is no way for them all to hear their programs with 20 plus children in the room going at the same time!
It is imperative that they all have their own personal set of headphones to get the maximum learning each day!
But their families already sent in a pair at great cost to them, and although the children have taken very good care of them, they tend to break and not last a full school year! So I am in need of providing head sets for my students if their current pair breaks and I have 0 left in my closet!
Please help me to get them for my students and make sure they are learning until the very last day of school!
