BIRCH GROVE ELEMENTARY TURNS TO CROWDFUNDING SITE FOR SUPPLIES

When 4th grade teacher, Becky Mallory wanted a special rug for her classroom, she turned to a crowdfunding site called Donors Choose. Besides bringing more ambiance to the room, the rug also assists students in learning. The large, bright rug, is made in the shape of a map of the United States.

Although Birch Grove has a large number of students on free or reduced lunch, the school doesn’t meet the requirements to get extra money through the Title I program.  Media Specialist Lanica Klein is spearheading the crowdfunding efforts at the school this year.  She recently successfully funded a book project. 

Klein has two new projects on the site: one will buy more hardcover books about diversity. While the other will buy bee robots, so students can learn to code.
