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 Loni Nguyen's 3rd grade class. Let me introduce you to the Mather and Loni Nguyen 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 Loni Nguyen

Ms. Nguyen is a third grade Sheltered English Immersion teacher for Vietnamese children at the Mather.  According to Ms. Nguyen, what impresses her most about her students is their love for reading and learning to communicate using English most of the time throughout the school day.   Although her students say wonderful things every day, the best thing a student ever said to her is: “Mrs. Nguyen…You are like my mom!...Thank you for showing us…You are a great teacher…I want to be in your class forever…I think I will miss you next year…”  Her dream classroom would have more computers in the classroom so that students could use technology more often, a listening center to improve their English skills and an updated library.

 

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 Loni Nguyen's ribution can help. Thank you. Kel Kelly
