My Students

My school is committed to providing a safe, child-centered environment which offers students the maximum opportunity to learn and achieve academic success. Our mission is to help our students acquire literacy and become critical thinkers through a curriculum that is rich, balanced and aligned with performance standards.

When it comes to learning about current events, science, technology and people across the world Scholastic News is of the highest quality news sources.

Our resources are limited, and we need your help. These materials are for multiple third grade classes that are located in New York City.

Nearly all of our students are from low-income households and have extremely limited resources. Our elementary school has grades PreK-5 and houses over 1,000 students in two separate buildings. Basic materials have become difficult to acquire for our Title I school.

My Project

The focus for the 2018-2019 school year will be grand conversations about reading. I can think of nothing greater than reading an inspirational magazine article and just bursting at the idea of talking about it with someone who has also read it.

I am requesting twenty-five subscriptions to the Scholastic News magazine.

This magazine will inspire students to read, think, debate, share ideas, generate theories, and develop social skills through conversation. I can teach them all of these skills, but I can't do it without your generous support. Children's magazines are a key motivator for students. The articles and stories in children's magazines are relatively short and can be read somewhat quickly. In addition, the magazine's multiple features can expose a child to a wide variety of subjects and introduce them to new issues and ideas. Your donation will make it possible for these students to read nonfiction articles and become aware of current events.
