Zach Bryant’s Eagle Scout Project - Work Day Details

My name is Zach Bryant and I am currently working on my Eagle Scout project. My

project’s goal is to create a library for San Francisco Nativity Academy, a non-tuition based private independent Christian PreK-3 through 1st-grade school serving low-income students and families. Many students at San Francisco Nativity Academy are from immigrant families who have recently moved to the United States. 95% of the students currently in attendance are considered English Language Learners and are just beginning to develop English language speaking skills. We are working to assist in their language learning activities by starting a Library at their school. This library will allow students to read age-oriented books during the school day to practice and develop their skills.

If you are interested in helping to build the new library, please join me at San Francisco Nativity Academy (5808 Renwick Drive, Houston 77081) on Saturday, April 13 from 9:00am-12:00 pm. During that time, we will be assembling new library shelving, stocking the library with the collected books, and cleaning and placing donated tables and chairs. Food and drinks will be provided for all volunteers – adult helpers are welcome! If you would like to know: how to get there, what to wear, what to bring, and to sign up to attend, use https://bsatroop11.wildapricot.org/event-3323071
