The world is full of uncertainties these days, and it’s hard to predict what the future will hold. One thing we know for certain is that Plymouth-Canton Community School (P-CCS) teachers need our support now more than ever. Whether they are teaching in the Virtual Academy or the Safe Start Return to Learn Program, methods of teaching and engaging students has significantly changed. Their needs for classroom materials looks quite different than it did last year. The Educational Excellence Foundation (EEF) is here to support teachers by providing resources they need to adapt to these changes.
Among the many teachers who may benefit from your generous support to the EEF is Sarah Street, who teaches in the self-contained Emotional Impaired Categorical Program at Workman Elementary. In a normal school year, her students engage in daily social emotional learning instruction time where they socialize and practice fine motor skills by playing group games and group building exercises. Due to COVID-19, her students are no longer able to participate in group work, depriving them of critical developmental skills so Sarah is asking the EEF for funding to purchase materials to create individual fine motor kits for each of her students. These skills are vital building blocks for children helping them to understand and manage their emotions, establish healthy relationships, make responsible decisions and succeed in an academic environment for years to come.
Let’s not let COVID-19 stop students from gaining these critical skill sets.
Your donation will help fund teacher requests that will be felt throughout our entire P-CCS community and impact students for years to come. Will you join the EEF in supporting teachers and students by helping us fund the resources they need to succeed in a COVID-19 teaching environment?
