Located in Houston’s Fifth Ward, Felix Cook Jr. Elementary School is on the Texas Education Agency (TEA) Improvement Required (IR) list. The campus and surrounding community were severely impacted by Hurricane Harvey, and several students at the school are struggling to read at grade-appropriate reading levels. They have the desire to learn but do not have much-needed resources to do so.

The school is in desperate need of :

  • Working computers to host educational software provided by HISD

  • Appropriate reading materials to appeal to below grade level readers

  • A designated breakout space to enrich experiences and promote higher learning

  • Engaging programming to inspire students to reach their full potential

The goal of the project is to develop a Learning Emporium/Computer Lab equipped with computers, furniture and appropriate reading materials for below grade level readers. The project will also encompass upgrading classroom facilities for better instruction and creating intentional, curated programming towards stimulating literacy. We hope that these resources will enable students at Felix Cook Jr. Elementary School to achieve its target reading grade.

We invite you to partner with us in creating the Cook Elementary Learning Lab by making a tax-deductible gift. By doing so, you will be investing in the future of our youth and our city Our ambitious project requires funding of $30,000 plus gifts-in-kind, and while any level of contribution is appreciated, we hope you will consider an impactful gift through the sponsorship levels below.
