Marketsmith continues to support Camden Street School with initiatives throughout the school year. We are proud to report the following achievements that could not have been accomplished without your continued support.
Camden Street School has been recognized for increased math and ELA (English Language Arts) scores for the past 5 years. There are only 2 schools out of the 58 Newark school to achieve this success.
For the school year of 2018/2019, the Kindergarten class has improved their grade level performance from 32% to 59%.
Camden Street School was in the top 10 for growth in math, exceeding the district average.
The dedication of the Camden Street School faculty is instrumental in guiding the students to success.
This year’s Bring Dinner Home Thanksgiving event will be held on November 14th. That night, the families will enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner and receive winter coats, supplies, grocery store gift cards, hats, gloves and diapers.
We need your help. Please consider making a tax deductible donation, purchasing children’s coats, hats, gloves, diapers or even volunteering.
In the past five years, the literacy rate of Newark’s Camden Street School has improved and surpassed both the state and city average improvement rate.
There is an undeniable and profound connection between hunger and a child’s ability to succeed in school, and in life. That’s why, in partnership with Principal Sam Garrison, Monica C. Smith and Amy Allan Smith chose to adopt Camden Street Elementary School for the “Bring Dinner Home” program in 2011. Their goal was to offer children and their families meaningful proof that others care about their well-being and futures. As the school motto promises, Camden Street is where students get the skills they need to achieve their dreams.
The obstacles faced by the students of The Camden Street School are immense:
But, thanks to Bring Dinner Home and your support, those obstacles are being overcome every single day, and the impact we’ve had has been gratifying:
The Camden Street School has seen an increase in its academic performance every year by at least 6% as evidenced by NJASK and PARCC.
“I believe those of us who have found success owe it to this world to make it a better place. This is my mission: to end hunger for the children in our state and to ensure that the obstacles to learning are removed. Every child deserves to be fed, safe and educated. It is that simple.”
We encourage other businesses in New Jersey and everywhere to use the Bring Dinner Home model and adopt a deserving school in your area. It will make a positive difference in the lives of the children and, as we can attest from our own incredible experience, will have a profound impact on the spirit of your employees.
