I am Mr. Roberts, 6th grade teacher at KIPP Sharpstown College Prep. I am helping my students set and achieve big goals. Here is Kalkidan to tell you more:
 

Hello! I am one of the hardest-working students in Houston. I want to go to the University of Texas and study music. I love reading sad or scary fiction. As a 6th grader at KIPP Sharpstown College Prep, I go to school for about three extra hours every day and do a lot of homework every night so that I can get one step closer to my dream of going to college. 

                                          

It's not easy, which is why we call it "Climbing the Mountain to College." To practice the persistence that I'm learning in school, I want to climb a real mountain--but not just any mountain...the highest mountain in Texas: Guadalupe Peak. It's a tough eight-hour climb to the top of the 8,750 foot summit and back. It will take every ounce of strength and grit I have, and it will also take your help!

 

You can help me by sponsoring my reading goal. Here's how it works. You donate toward my trip to Guadalupe Peak, and I will read for 40 hours in our March Read-a-Thon and send you a thank you note that explains what I read. 

 

Thank you very much for your support. I wouldn't be able to do it without you!

Your donation will not go directly to the student. It will  be deposited through WePay into the school's account, which will be used to pay for the trip to Guadalupe Peak and the costs of camping, equipment, etc.
