My Students

My students come to school every day, ready to learn. They come from poverty and 97% are English Language Leaners. Families that are poor already have half the vocabulary of higher-income children. I want to share the love of reading that I have.

My students come from low-incomes and both parents are working parents.

Ninety-two percent of my students are English Language Learners. They are at school for most of the day and need material for learning. Our staff and students focus on fully implementing California content standards using aligned materials and research-based strategies. Current state-adopted textbooks and instructional supplies are provided for each student. We are a one school, school district and do not have the resources of a bigger district.

My Project

I am requesting 28 subscriptions to TIME for Kids for my students. My students will be able to interact with the online video and vocabulary and the non-fiction reading. They will be reading about real stories and interacting with the news on their grade level. They will be able to share and take home the text. They can interact and connect with the world.

The donations you make will put real life stories in their hands.

They will be able to read the text and interact with pictures, video and vocabulary. They will be able to integrate ideas, unleash curiosity and connect with the world.
