Wow, 200% of Goal!
April 18, 2018
April 22nd is a special day, I will be participating in the Hill Mile, a fundraiser to help others. The Hill Center helps me meet my reading and writing goals. My goal for 2018 is to reach the 5th grade reading level and learn to write awesome stories. These are important goals to help me enjoy learning and grow academically. With the help of one of my teachers, I was diagnosed with two learning differences – impairment in reading with word reading fluency and accuracy and written expression with spelling. Hill Center has 1 teacher for 4 students to provide individualized learning. HillRAP curriculum allows for highly customized assignments to meet my unique needs. One of the most important things I learn are Word Attack strategies specific to how I process information. By using Hill Center strategies at my school, I'm confident in class and am really proud of my success!
Unfortunately, the Hill Center isn't a financial option for all kids who need the same kind of help as me. The Hill Mile serves as an opportunity to raise scholarships. It's for kids just like me who need individualized learning but is financially out of reach for their family. This fundraiser holds a special place to me because I used to be frustrated with my homework and classwork and now it’s easier for me to enjoy learning. Your donation will replace learning frustration with excitement & enthusiasm at an important time in a child's life. Please consider a tax deductible donation for the success of other kids like me!
