The students at our school are incredibly kind, loving and eager to learn. Daily students arrive at school in uniforms and smiles ready to great their teachers, and learn something new!
"We rise by lifting others" - Robert Ingersoll
The students that attend this school come from a low socioeconomic status. Many students at our school are on free or reduced-price lunch, and the school provides school supplies and the uniform for school. These circumstances often do not allow students access to academic supplies outside the campus of our school. Although these situations are unfair, my students deserve the same materials and access that any other child has. Providing these materials will help to push my students to a successful life.
These materials will reach a large group of students who are learning English along with a second language. Many of the students at our school speak English as a second language and often don't have English spoken at home. Help us support our students in the best way we know how.
With all that being said, we need to ensure that we are providing every student with instruction, and materials that will best benefit each individual students learning.
Everyone deserves the opportunity to learn at their specific learning level. The materials will provide better small group instruction and will empower students to feel confident when speaking, writing and listening.
