BENEFITING: THE BOSTON EDUCATION DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Feb 01, 2013
Hi, We would 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. We have decided to help one of these schools and sponsor the kids in one of these classrooms in need. As a Mather Classroom Champion we are dedicated to help raise funds for Sarah Dominick's 2nd grade class. Let us introduce you to the Mather and Ms. Dominick and we hope you’ll see why we 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 Sarah Dominick
Sarah has been teaching for 6 years and is going into her 2nd year as a 2nd grade teacher at the Mather. What impresses her most about her students is “their energy and eagerness to learn. They are curious and they ask great questions.” According to Ms. Dominick, “the Mather has a strong sense of community. Additionally, families, students, and teachers all seem happy and proud to be a part of this school.” Ms. Dominick’s dream classroom would have at least 5 updated computers, an LCD projector and a library full of books that connected to her students’ cultures, interests and reading levels. Funding from the Mather Classroom Champions program could also help support science and social studies learning by allowing us to create even more partnerships with museums, educational organizations, and community groups.
