This past Saturday, we had a great turnout of 15 Highland Park United Methodist Church volunteers to revitalize the KB Polk Elementary School campus!

United to Learn

United to Learn (U2L) is a nonprofit organization comprised of 27 public elementary schools within the Conrad, Hillcrest, Thomas Jefferson and W.T. White feeder patterns of Dallas ISD, 20 community partners (including independent schools, faith-based organizations, and businesses), 16 full-and-part-time staff, 25 volunteer part-time staff, and over 1,750 supporting volunteers. Our members recognize that too many of our youngest learners are not positioned for success, despite attending school in an enclave where resources are abundant and residents are among some of the wealthiest and most highly degreed in the city.

Among the 15,800 public elementary children (77% Hispanic, 12% African American, 8% Anglo, 3% Asian) who attend United to Learn supported schools, 87% are socio-economically disadvantaged (thirteen percent higher than the County), and 67% are English Language Learners (three times higher than the Region).

Our model begins with a thorough data analysis in concert with our public school leaders. By embracing the current circumstances of our supported public elementary schools, bright spots and challenges, we can isolate and identify the most acute needs by campus. Then, by applying a proven model according to our four levers - social and emotional learning, campus environment, literacy and advocacy - we design initiatives to best fill these gaps to achieve our true north goal of accelerating third grade student achievement.

Thank you United to Learn! All of our literacy wishes were granted here @junkinsexpress with the Literacy Supply Drive. It was like the wizard of oz came and granted us our wishes. Our students will be reading and writing so much better thanks to our generous benefactors.
