Cora Kelly School is one amazing public elementary school. Our kids are working so hard, trying to improve their math scores. They are also focused mightily on reaching grade level or better for reading. But with an increasing number of our students (nearly 90%) qualifying for free and reduced lunch (an indicator of childhood poverty), and over 40% English Language Learners, there are definitely challenges to learning that our students in particular have to overcome.
Do you think these obstacles stop our students? Not a chance! What is the CK secret? Our staff and teachers -- the superb women and men who inspire CK kids every day, who come early and stay hours late because they are devoted to helping their students learn.
Where does the CK PTA fit in to all of this? The PTA does what it can to help CK teachers and show our appreciation by helping provide financially for classroom needs that are increasingly not met bet tax dollars. And we try as much as possible to support student programs too, like afterschool activities including Crazy8's Math Club, Mad Science, and others. The CK PTA continues to advocate for this great school, and pitch in wherever we can do good. On April 5, help us Spring2Action to support this great community of teachers and learners.
