Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Signal Hill

Total Budget: $2,000

Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Activity Type: Education: Literacy

Summary: School supplies provided to Alvarado Elementary School and Nelson Academy

The COVID-19 pandemic has moved the classroom from the school campus to home. The pandemic has resulted in many parents and guardians of school age children having their work hours and compensation reduced, while others have lost their employment. Access to school supplies will be critical to these households heading into the 2020-2021 school year. The Rotary Club of Signal Hill continues in our commitment to the academic success of students attending Signal Hill-based Alvarado Elementary School and Nelson Academy (middle school). Alvarado and Nelson administrations and teachers have noted that our past school supplies donations have contributed to their ability to help their students achieve higher academic performance. The schools continue to demonstrate 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 project will take placed in the months of August and September 2020, allowing the school supplies to be available for the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year.
