What's New

SHARP allows students to look not only at themselves, but others.
My students not only improve their reading and writing skills, they also become more confident learners.
While SHARP’s impact is often felt by students who are struggling, it also fits the needs of high achievers.
The SHARP Literacy program not only has the needed content, but also fun ways of approaching these concepts!
I’m indebted to SHARP because not only do you grow my students but you’ve grown me as an educator.
Our students learned so much about their community and have a profound new appreciation for Milwaukee.

Giving Tuesday is November 27!

Reading competency is a predictor of lifelong academic success. Every child in Milwaukee deserves that opportunity. SHARP Literacy partners with 43 area schools in support of that goal.

SHARP Board Member Brad Bertler sums up the reason he is involved, “I support SHARP because of its literacy mission. Simply put, if children can read, they can learn. If they can learn, they can be successful in life.”

Join Brad and donate to SHARP on Giving Tuesday – November 27.

Photos from SHARP Literacy's post At Blessed Sacrament School, K4 students learn about communication and living things. They created their own puppets to practice discussion skills with each other. Students also explored the different ways that animals communicate by singing like birds or dancing like bees!
SHARP Literacy added 4 new photos.
Giving Tuesday is November 27! Educational tours to area sites like the Milwaukee Art Museum, Urban Ecology Center and Discovery World are an integral part of the SHARP Literacy program. These hands-on learning opportunities solidify classroom concepts and spark a love for learning, offering urban students a chance to visit places they might not otherwise see.

Your support of SHARP Literacy can provide these life-changing experiences for deserving young people. Join our friends Brigid Globensky, Amy Kirschke and Sarah Ozurumba from MAM and give to SHARP on Giving Tuesday – November 27.

We love our partner schools and the educators who work hard to inspire our students – and us!
