BENEFITING: FAMILIES IN SCHOOLS
ORGANIZER: FAMILIES IN SCHOOLS
Dear Family and Friends,
Please consider making a donation to Families In Schools (FIS) on my behalf (http://bit.ly/1lD1Jmw). FIS aims to provide disadvantaged families with access to resources to advocate and support their child’s academic achievement. Many of these families face the similar challenges my own family endured growing up:
- Trying to partner with a school system that doesn’t consistently value the role of families
- Limited communication with their child’s school
- Little to no access to resources on college readiness
I am currently working on a campaign to help increase the number of low-income students who are reading a proficient level by the end of 3rd grade. The attached video (Statisticks) will explain why this is such an important benchmark. Your donation, no matter the amount, will enable FIS and me to continue fulfilling its mission.
