We are thrilled to announce EnjoyReading's partnership site has been confirmed to Stanton Elementary! Stanton Elementary is located in Ward 8, Southeast Washington DC at 2701 Naylor Road SE.
2010 achievement data showed 8 percent proficiency in math and 13 percent proficiency in reading, ranking Stanton at the bottom of all DC Public Schools. Last school year (2010-2011), DC Public Schools partnered with Scholar Academies to manage Stanton under turnaround provisions.
In this Sunday's New York Times article "Washington, D.C., Loses Black Majority" - quotes "In April, the Census Bureau reported that Ward 8, in the city’s mostly poor and black southeast, had the highest jobless rate in the country."
EnjoyReading is excited to work closely this year with the students, families and staff and provide a service needed at Stanton. Help out by sending a book requested by the students, and let's get everyone to enjoy reading!
