Jenkins-White Elementary School

Organization Details

Additional Details

The Mission of Jenkins-White Elementary School is to instill self-worth, value and potential in each student so that they will make positive decisions that will lead them to a successful career path.

What a gift it would be to receive a brand new book for the holidays. How excited would you be to receive something that would allow you to explore lands and fairy-tales or learn more about historical figures. Jenkins-White Elementary is a K-5 school including students with special needs. Many of the students at Jenkins-White Elementary are considered low-income. They often do not have books at home of their own. During the time off from school when children do not have access to the school’s media center, they lose the opportunity to have books to read. Our students have a wide variety of interest in many genre of books. Many students thrive from reading biographies, others enjoy graphic novels when others simply enjoy a silly laugh from the Dork Diaries. We want to provide them with a wide variety of books to choose from. In addition a wide variety of reading supports knowledge across the curriculum. Students would show continued growth through reading about the solar system and the events leading up to the Revolutionary War. Below we have provided a list of books for you to choose from to share your love of a particular genre with a student. You may also ship books to the school to the attention of Augusta University Virtual Day of Service. 800 15th Avenue Augusta, Georgia 30901. We would like to send every child home with at least 8 books for the holiday break. This would allow them to read books for themselves, to their siblings and other members of their family. This would allow the entire family to have the opportunity to enjoy reading. It also gives the student the continued practice to becoming a better reader. This is a gift that would keep on giving. Students would be motivated. this project would foster the love of reading back into each students home.

Children who attend Jenkins-White Elementary School enjoy a building that is spacious and sparkling clean. Since the building has recently changed roles it has not been beautified with paintings in common areas such as the media center and cafeteria. We would love the addition of colorful wall murals to inspire learning, imagination, and a sense of pride in the Jenkins-White Bears. We would be especially proud to feature local artists from Augusta University. This project will require special skills to design and paint the murals. We will provide access to the building outside of school hours. We have attached a few ideas for our murals.
