Reading should be fundamental and math magnificent; however, the children we work with in our K-8 afterschool program struggle with the basics and we need your help to change this. Last year, less than 45% of the eighth graders at our middle school met or exceeded English standards and less than 22% met or exceeded standards in math. Not good. Thanks to students like our eighth graders Tolu, Kelly and Jada who improved in English by two letter grades; and Jerry, Yamileth and SaMya who improved by a letter grade in math by the end of the school year, we know that with your help we can continue helping to close the achievement gap between proficient and struggling children.
We are asking everyone to rally their friends, family and networks to help us keep preparing students for college, work and life.
Supporting my friend and education!
