Two months ago Hurricane María impacted Puerto Rico and schools suffered great damage. I'm asking your support for the Dr. Antonio S. Pedreira elementary school in Puerto Nuevo, San Juan. When the storm ripped off the ceiling of its library, all the books and school materials store at the library were gone. This school has inspired many teachers and is a leader in educational innovations. The school already started classes and the teachers need these materials with urgency. Teacher Norys González has been coordinating the selection of the books they need for their specific school curriculum and the selection of the materials listed below. Please, join me on supporting the teachers so that the children keep receiving the quality education they deserve.
 
Books for their curriculum, thematic units, and for reading: 7,000.
Tables: 215.95 x 7 = 1511.65
Chairs: 49.95 x 28 = 1398.60
1 Large wood shelf/Tablillero:  936.
1 Set of furniture for the reading area: 2,299.
Carpet 9'x12' for the reading area in Spanish/English: 736.95
Electronic Library and Resource Center:
[Smart] Pizarra Mimio Board 87, proyector, program notebook for all subjects, sound system, etc plus installation: 5,399.
Earthwalk Laboratory:
- eXploration Reading Center: 
--Mobile unit: 2995.
--eXplotation Classtab (Earthwalk compatible classmate): 552. x 13 = 7176. 
--Printer E460dn Lexmark & service: 460.

The school's motto is: "Los niños nacen para ser felices" [Children are born to be happy.] After what the country has gone through, the teacher, the parents, the children and I will appreciate your support to help us keep the children that way: happy and smart. Thanks! If you want to learn more about the school, you can find it in Facebook.

La electricidad que se fue con los huracanes ya llegó a la escuela pero ni los libros ni la biblioteca todavía no. Seguimos contando con su solidaridad para que las/los maestras/os puedan poner los libros en las manos de las niñas y niños para hacer sus proyectos de investigación. ¡Gracias!

Ya casi llegamos a los $5,000 para pagar por los libros que están separados en la librería Aparicio para los estudiantes de la escuela Antonio S Pedreira. Aunque la electricidad todavía no ha llegado, por lo menos los libros ya están asegurados. Por favor, compartan esta campaña para ayudar a conseguir parte de los muebles que necesitan para habilitar el salón que servirá de biblioteca. Pronto estaremos oyendo a la Directora de la escuela, Sra. Cecilia Malavé y a la maestra Sra. Norys González, poniéndonos al día sobre el progreso de la biblioteca. Gracias por su solidaridad.
We are close to reach the 5,000 that will pay for the first set of books for the children's library. What a great holiday gift for them. They are ending the semester without electricity but with books. Please, spread these efforts to help them now get some of the furniture for the classroom that will serve as their library. Principal Cecilia Malavé and teacher Norys González will be writing to you soon. Thanks for your solidarity!

Dear friends and colleagues. The Antonio S. Pedreira elementary school in Puerto Rico is still teaching without electricity but the teachers and the children are focused in their studies trying to move forward after the terrible disaster that impacted the island. Thanks to those who have contributed to help them buy the books and educational materials they lost when the storm ripped off the library's ceiling. The storm didn't take away their thirst for knowledge and their desires to move forward. During this holiday season, please, spread these efforts to raise the funds they need. They look forward to have the books in their hands soon. Gracias, Carmen M. Martínez
