Fund A Need

2019 Fund-A-Need:  Paraeducators Make the Difference

Ever wonder how you can have a direct impact on your child's classroom and school community?

By making a contribution to this year's fund a need, you will be providing opportunities for Edmonds Elementary to place more paraeducator support into our classrooms. Paraeducators collaborate with teachers thus allowing them to assist in instructing our students in math, reading and writing. Often they work one on one with students or in small guided instructional groups where they offer additional support and interventions. At our school, we rely heavily on our paraeducators for their supervisory duties before and after school and on the playground as well. They are critical to our school's safety and security. Last year's auction raised enough funds for us to implement 2 hours a day of additional paraeducator time for the 2018-2019 school year. Every child has benefited from this wonderful gift. In addition, we have been able to divide the 2 hours up into 30 minute increments of instructional time this year. This translates into four classrooms receiving extra support each day in reading, writing or math instruction. In light of possible budget cuts and reallocation of funds for the upcoming school year, your contribution will have a huge impact on our school. We would love to be able to provide this much needed additional support for our students in the upcoming school year.
