Our school has created a unique idea that will help turn our school around: start a summer math mobile! The math mobile will function alot like a bookmobile, but will focus primarily on improving key math skills by delivering exciting math games and activities. We will travel to the neighborhoods of our school community delivering standards-based math activities to target key math skills that the entire family can participate in together. A large percentage of the students at our school are at-risk learners. We are certain that our presence in their neighborhoods will have a positive impact on them. Therefore, we are planning to make 3 trips throughout the summer- about 1 every 3 weeks. Participating in the math mobile summer program will strengthen the relationship between school and community while improving the math proficiency of our students. Our needs are simple: magnet sheets, ink cartridges, and cardstock paper. We need 120 sheets of magnet paper that will be used to create magnets for students to display the dates and times of our visits throughout the summer on their refrigerators at home. We also need 4 ink cartridges to print the magnet sheets: (2) HP color #22 and (2) HP black #21. Finally, we will need 800 sheets of colored cardstock paper to print and make game boards for the math activities. We fully believe that in order for our students to succeed, we must build a strong relationship with our community and provide meaningful activities and experiences that will interest reluctant learners. We cannot afford to lose 3 months of instruction over the summer if we plan on achieving success. Please thoughtfully consider our request for materials. Our students deserve a fighting chance!
