EVENT DATE Aug 25, 2014
I am a high school ESL teacher in Dallas. At my school, over 50% of our students are English language learners and over 80% are living in poverty. We also have the highest concentration of refugee students at any high school in the city of Dallas, Many of our students come to us with limited or no formal education, so we are making every effort to help them bridge the gap!
To kickstart our new Academic Success Initiative, I am raising funds to provide Academic Planners for every incoming freshman this year. Our faculty will teach them how to use the planners to set goals and stay on top of assignments, AND we will hold them accountable for maintaining them. It is a small step, but we believe it will make a big difference on our campus!
I will post a picture of the receipt upon payment for the planners, and hopefully update with kids actually using them!
