    Page Turners 2020

    $325.00 raised
    GOAL: $5,000.00

    $5,000 = 500 books received by students in need

    SCV Education Foundation is currently raising $5,000 to give junior high students to help in starting to build their own personal libraries and cultivate their literacy skills. SCV Education Foundation will match up to $3,500 of donations in order to achieve our $7,000 fundraising goal for Page Turners 2020.

    The foundation chose to work with socioeconomically disadvantaged junior high schools because:

    • Children from low-socioeconomic families are less likely to have experiences that encourage the development of fundamental skills of reading acquisition.
    • Children’s initial reading competency is correlated with the home literacy environment.
    • Children from low-socioeconomic status families enter high school with average literacy skills five years behind those of high-income students.

    The foundation is looking to continue the Page Turner program into a Title 1 school where approximately 31% of junior high students are falling behind the targeted reading level. By allowing students to start their own library with age-appropriate books it encourages a literacy environment at home and motivates them to read and improve their literacy skills.

    $10 = a book in 1 student’s personal library
