Title 1 Schools
Our programs are designed to help all students use the arts and imagination to chase their dreams, but we focus on Title 1 Schools because, by definition, these schools have a concentration of low-income students and are in great need of our help.
The types of students in Title 1 Schools include homeless students, students with disabilities, neglected students, delinquent students, at-risk students, migrant students, students with limited English proficiency, or any student in need.
The United States Government assigns the status to schools based on statistics.
This rating of Title 1 allows us, as an organization, to pinpoint children most in need. It allows us to understand that the students in these schools are at a high risk of not achieving their potential due to environmental circumstances. These are the students who need our help.
We know that giving these children the tools they need to create a brighter future will help to transform our society and we are committed to doing just that.
So far, The Perfect Day Box Foundation has donated:
600 Chasing Your Dreams coloring books and 600 Janer’s Dream books to the Pencil Foundation for metro schools in Nashville. Children exiting preschool and entering Kindergarten
Kerry Conley, Program Director-LP Pencil Box – Pencil Foundation of Nashville said,
“This is exactly what these kids need! People really need to understand how much these kids don’t dream.”
The Foundation will be donating art, books and music to 2,000 students in the Acadiana area this fall. Schools names will be announced in September.
