Elementary School is located on the northern edge of Denver
and is part of the Denver Public School system. The school
has an enrollment of 568 children in the 2011/2012 school
year. We made our first visit to Swansea on December 14th,
2011 and were greeted by students eager to be great readers.
We trust we can add value to their mission to educate and
equip all children to become highly effective
first distribution was a huge success and a very pleasant
surprise for our students. It’s hard to put into
words the excitement in their eyes as they saw the beautiful
display of books that had been set up specifically for
them. Alyssa’s touching story of compassion and
her love of reading were inspiring to our students. The
vast majority of our students do not have access to many
print materials in their home and we know from the research
on reading instruction that the amount of language and
print a child is exposed to early in their lives is a
major factor in promoting the development of reading skills.
Your Foundation has not only provided access to books,
but more importantly, a passion for books – an invaluable
gift for our students."
