Mather Classroom Champions

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 Katie Hussey's 3rd grade class. Let me introduce you to the Mather and Ms Hussey 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.

Meet Katie Hussey

Ms Hussey has worked for seven years at the Mather: as a student teacher, substitute teacher, and now as a third grade teacher.

Ms. Hussey continues to be impressed by her students’ desire to learn, despite the obstacles they face. “I am always blown away by the resiliency of the students who have very stressful lives outside of school,” she said. “I have learned a vast amount of insight about the world around me, both locally and globally, from my students and their families.”

Ms. Hussey hopes to improve her classroom with more computers, new cork boards, a reading area for students with comfortable chairs, a portable projection screen, a flip camera, and picture books about American history.

She also added, “There is so much history here in the Boston area that field trips could help the students understand and connect to the past. Through these trips and discussions, they could realize just how much power they have in shaping the future, rather than thinking everything happened through a few very influential leaders in history.”

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 Hussey's class. Any contributions will help. See the list below for how your contribution can help. Thank you. The Staples Marketing Team
