RCP Fundraiser - Classroom Library

Help us prepare Richmond College Prep students to become life-long readers!!

RCP is currently a TK through 6th grade, Title I charter school located in Richmond, California and will be expanding to 7th and 8th grade over the next two years. Historically, we have experienced great academic success from our hardworking scholars, and our goal is to continue this success, but we need your help!

Next year, Richmond College Prep will be launching an engaging reading program called Reader's Workshop. While using the Reader's Workshop model, teachers will create a reading environment that encourages students to be active, lifelong, critical thinkers and readers. In order for our students to truly be successful, every class must have a complete library with leveled, high-interest books.
