“Together, we can help all children build the key language and literacy skills they need to
take on the world”

In order to help every child enter Kindergarten prepared to succeed, we will partner with Jumpstart, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing educational and social-emotional programming for preschool children from under-resourced communities and promoting quality early learning for all. We will volunteer at Jumpstart’s annual campaign event, Read for the record, to help our children build early literacy and language skills, so no child is left behind. Also, we will raise money for Jumpstart by establishing bake sales and collaborating with different restaurants around campus, including Chipotle, Blaze Pizza, Tropical Smoothie Cafe and Maxi’s Pizza. Not only will we initiate fundraisers, but we will also collect books, school supplies, and in-kind donations through our educational drives and active Marketing promotions. We advocate for equal opportunity and resource for every child’s education.
