STANDING IN THE GAP: Donavon Bryant Memorial Softball Game
Organized by: Standing In The Gap
The Standing in the Gap Foundation (SITG) seeks to do just that - fill in educational gaps in [our community]. As you know - there continues to be a wide achievement gap between minority students in (Lower Merion School District) and their peers. Those gaps are deepest in math and reading. It still takes a village to raise a child - so these are all of OUR children. SITG is currently working with reading recovery specialists to focus on reading comprehension and help students understand messages in reading and construct messages in writing; learning how to attend to detail without losing focus on meaning. The program goal is to bring children up to the level of their peers and to give them the assistance they need to develop independent reading and writing strategies.
The 7th Annual Donavon Bryant Softball Game is one of the neighborhoods brightest days. Fun and competition aside - the game is a big fundraiser for the organization. You contribution of $10-$20 (or whatever you can afford) will help fund programs and pay for supplies that will ultimately help your children - and by extension our community. We ALL play a role in the failure or success of our kids - Please do what you can to help in this effort. Peace & Love.
