THE STORY:

Hi, I’d like to introduce a local cause that can help all of our futures. You may have heard about the budget cuts facing our public schools. I have decided to help one of these schools and sponsor the kids in one of these classrooms in need. As a Mather Classroom Champion I am dedicated to help raise funds for Kim Crawford's kindergarden class. Let me introduce you to the Mather and  Ms. Crawford and I hope you’ll see why I have decided to get involved.

America’s first elementary school.
The Mather Elementary School, is the first public elementary school in North America, located in the historic Meeting House Hill neighborhood of Dorchester. The recession has taken a serious toll on the Mather and all Boston Public Schools. Over the past two years, budget cuts have left classrooms in need of materials and supplies – let alone Smartboards and other educational technology.

I'd like you to meet Ms. Crawford.
Kim Crawford is in her fourth year at the Mather as a Kindergarten teacher. According to Ms. Crawford, what impresses her most is, “how with continuous effort and hard work, my students were able to achieve many of the challenging learning goals that were established at the beginning of the school year. I’m so proud of them all!”

Ms. Crawford values the diversity amongst the staff and students at the Mather. And, as a former student of the Mather, she takes great pride in watching the school evolve into a place where both culture and education are celebrated. “I appreciate and applaud the administration for their hard work and ensuring the school remains a positive and safe place for the children. They are truly amazing!”

She hopes that contributions from the Mather Classroom Champions will provide much-needed classroom materials that encourage both the educational and developmental skills of her students. Ms. Crawford's immediate needs include guided reading and writing materials, art supplies, musical instruments and the basics like pencils, erasers and markers.”

At the end of the day, it’s all about the students for Ms. Crawford. She says, “I believe kindergarten is the foundation of learning for every student. Children at this stage of development, as well as the educators who teach them, should not be short changed on the tools, supplies, materials and support of valued para-professionals. All of these things are needed to prepare the ‘total’ child.”

Here’s how you can help:

• Make a tax-deductible donation today.
• Encourage your friends and family to make a donation.
• Sign up to volunteer by contacting Principal Cox at ecox@boston.k12.ma.us.

I hope you can help me raise the funds to bridge the gap in funding in Ms. Crawford's  class. Any contributions will help. See the list below for how your contribution can help. Thank you.  John Moniz
