Our Differentiated Language Arts class reads a lot of books! It is not easy to find a class set of books, so we can all read the same book at the same time. That is why I am asking for a class set of three different books. One book is about a student with a learning disability, one is about a student with a physical disability, and one is written from the perspective of a student of color. Each of these books gives students a chance to see inside the mind of a student who is their same age. The book may give them insight into another person's life, or maybe it will make them think, "This character is just like me! I have those same feelings!" Students read the books with their classmates and then talk about their reactions. It is my hope the students start to see the world differently and become more empathic toward others whose live may or may not be different than their own. Requesting $670.80 plus cost reimbursement.
Circle of Friends is an organization that utilizes peer mediated intervention to train typically developing peers to implement behavioral interventions and facilitate positive social skills development in special needs populations. The Irving Circle of Friends group is requesting funds to facilitate an outing for our Circle of Friends students. Previously successful outings for the Irving Circle of Friends club included going out to eat at Village Inn (and practicing table manners and social skills), going bowling (and practicing social skills including turn taking), and going to see a movie in the theater (practicing theater etiquette and social skills). We would use the Circle of Friends outing funds to continue this tradition by providing funding for all Circle of Friends club members to attend these outings. The funds raised would go to pay for students' admission to bowling and/or students' meals at a restaurant and/or students' admission to a movie theater. We are anticipating around 20 students to participate in these outings. Requesting $300 plus cost reimbursement.
Your donation would support the purchase of concert T-shirts for continued success in music at Everett Elementary school. We have more students involved in Band, Orchestra, and Chorus every year, and we want all students to have access to a concert T-shirt that fits them well!
Many students wear their music T-shirts throughout the school year and take pride in their membership in musical groups at Everett. Imagine what your support can mean for a child's musical life.
Requesting $725 plus cost reimbursement.
Thank you for your consideration, Go Eagles! Go Everett!
