Location: Signal Hill

Total Budget: $3,000

Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Activity Type: Education: General

Summary: Purchase/Assembly/Donation of School Supplies to Signal Hill students

The Rotary Club of Signal Hill continues in our commitment to the academic success of students attending Signal Hill-based schools (Alvarado Elementary, Nelson Academy, and Signal Hill Elementary). All three schools have noted that our school supplies donations have contributed to their ability to help their students achieve higher academic performance. In the 2019 KCET's online "Closing the Achievement Gap," Signal Hill Elementary School noted "The Signal Hill Rotary Club provides school supplies to students who may struggle to pay for them otherwise." The schools have demonstrated improvement in test scores during the years our club has been providing school supplies. These students continue to represent at risk households, including meeting reduced lunch cost criteria and are self-identified as homeless. Rotarians and community partners will assemble the school supplies kits. The District 5320 grant will be used to supplement our club community services funds and donations to finance this project. The assembly will take place in early-mid August, allowing the school supplies to be available for the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year.
