Do you remember the Scholastic book program at school when you were a kid? Sadly, these students don't know that experience .. so we want to help!
Valencia Newcomer School works with refugee and immigrant students to become more English-fluent in a unique and accelerated way, preparing them for transition to traditional schools with resounding success!
Milkweed Arts raises funds year-round, which we provide to the school for books. Through this program, Milkweed Arts has been able to ensure that students at Valencia received brand-new books from Scholastic throughout the year. These books go home with the students and are theirs to keep, allowing them to grow a family library of reading material, helping the entire family in their journey toward fluency.
With all the challenges of teaching through covid-19 over the last two+ school years, we think this program is even more vital than ever! Please consider helping us today, with your contribution! Every dollar helps, and Milkweed Arts matched every dollar contributed!
