Tim Miller at Palo Verde High requested books to help his ELD students from around the world indentify with American culture and also their own sense of being outsiders. The Rincon Rotary believes in the power of reading to help students in their English Language Development and was happy to help.
Rincon Rotary's support is part of its Rotary LOCAL program, whose mission is to help improve the local community through educational outreach. Rotary LOCAL can provide manpower, resources from local business partners, or in some cases, direct financial support to teachers who apply for assistance.
To find out more about Rotary LOCAL and how it may be able to help you, go to rotarylocal.org. Primary support for Rotary LOCAL comes from the Rincon Rotary's annual fundraiser, The Tucson Taste of Chocolate.
