Commit To Early Literacy

As the holidays near and we give thanks for our many gifts, consider that:

We must do all we can to support students before they fall behind, granting them the joy of reading, the freedom to master other subjects and the opportunity to become lifelong learners. The Commit! Partnership is working closely with Dallas ISD leaders at 32 elementary schools to advance early literacy for more than 20,000 students. As part of this effort, teachers have set up projects requesting resources and materials to provide the best possible instruction in their classrooms. Please join us by exploring and financially supporting these projects. Thank you, and Happy Holidays.

South Oak Cliff Feeder Pattern

Nine elementary schools in the SOC feeder pattern serve 4,500 students, 29% of whom are English Language Learners and 95% of whom qualify for free or reduced price lunch. 40% of our 3rd grade students failed to meet minimal reading standards in 2012. While our schools are making great strides under committed leadership and dedicated teachers, it will take a village to support our children given the barriers they face outside the classroom. A classroom with ample resources is critical to advancing literacy achievement and we hope you’ll consider donating to our classrooms. Each dollar arms our students with the tools they need to learn to read.

Marcus Elementary

In our community, 34% of the population lives in poverty and many struggle constantly with homelessness. Additionally, our families are tasked with finding money to sustain their most basic needs; approximately 95.3% have students who qualify for free or significantly reduced lunch prices. It is our community partners who add that extra component that keep the school strong and steady.
