Mrs. Bourgeois from Billerica MA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Literacy Equity

My students need high interest, high quality books to continue to grow their brains over the summer!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our students are just beginning to grow their life-long love of reading!

Our English Language Learners amaze us every day with their drive to learn and grow themselves as citizens.

They aren't always given the same opportunities or resources as their peers, but they continue to strive, no matter what.

This year, they have achieved so much! They are made significant gains in their reading, writing, and math skills. They are leaders of their classrooms when it comes to effort and perseverance. We are truly proud!

My Project

Getting high-quality, high-interest books into the hands of our English Language Learners is critical!

According to Research, students who often lack access to books during the summer are most likely to fall behind their peers and lose 2-3 months of reading development.

Our ELLS have difficulty accessing the same resources as their peers, which hinders their ability to read and practice their language skills over the summer.

This project would allow for our students to get books to continue to grow their brains over the summer. These books would give our ELLs access to rich language and vocabulary.

Please consider donating today to give the opportunity to our ELLs to read and grow their love for literacy!
