My students need these weekly Scholastic News magazines to have a chance to read and learn about the world.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students want to learn but often struggle in school because they don't have the basics that they need for school. We live in a very isolated location, which means that many students don't get to leave the area. This isolation can limit their experiences if we are not careful. We are in a geographically isolated area with limited financial resources and students don't always get the opportunity to do STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) activities of their own choosing.
Students want to have good lives so they need to learn about places and things outside of our rural area to prepare them for life!
We need Scholastic News Magazines on these two different levels so our students can learn about other people in other cultures. This is really important because we live in an area that is very isolated (in the Southern Appalachian Mountains) and some of our students are not exposed to people who are different from them in any way. Our population is extremely homogeneous and that means that the students only go to school with, see and socialize with, and even read about in books and text books, people who are just like them.
Scholastic News will help open conversations about the world, about other cultures and about people who are different than us in order to help our students appreciate other cultures.
