BENEFITING: COSMOS FOUNDATION INC
Hi! My name is Rachel, and I am a First Grade Teacher at Harmony Science Academy in Austin, TX, Our school is a Title I public charter school located in the Rundberg Lane Community. We primarily serve minority, low income students in one of Austin's most vulnerable areas.
Our school is housed in an old church building. Daily, we struggle to maximize our teaching instruction in cramped classrooms with poor heating, cooling and ventilation. Resource teachers and interventionists teach small groups in hallways, on the floor, or in the cafeteria because there is no other space to learn. We have no gym, so students run and play on a dusty little field (that also serves as an impromptu parking lot), a tiny playground with broken equipment, or a small "grassy" area (which is also our dismissal area).
We are outgrowing our tiny facilities and our wait list of students grows even longer! Help us build new facilities for our dedicated staff members and deserving students!
