Mr. Dorn's Social Studies Class

Last year I raised over $4,000 to provide new reading books, school supplies, and new technology for my 4th, 5th, and 6th grade Social Studies students at Encore Academy in New Orleans, LA. The funding you provided also allowed me to purchase various resources to create engaging, interactive, and fun lessons for a group of amazing students who deserve an excellent educational experience. As a result, over 96% of my 6th grade students passed their end of year Social Studies assessment. Over 76% of my 4th and 5th graders also passed their end of year Social Studies assessment. At the begining of the school year over 80% of my students were at least two years behind on their reading and writing abilities. Your donations, care, and love provided my classroom with the tools and resources to succeed. I am currently looking to repeat that success next year and I need your help. 

This year I am teaching in a new classroom in a new building that is in need of a serious make-over. I am currently raising money to purchase a new history library for my 5th, 6th, and 7th grade students as well as resources, supplies, posters, and prizes for my students. It is my goal to provide my amazing and inspiring students with a challenging educational experience. However, I also want to create a classroom space that is welcoming and ensures my students are provided with the same educational experience I had growing up in New York. 

Thank you for reading, helping, and caring. Your donations are making the difference in the lives of over 100 students that deserve an equal and excellent educational experience. 

Best,

Mr. Dorn
