For the past 20 years SHARP Literacy has worked to change the lives of underserved children. The journey to where SHARP is today has taught us a lot about where SHARP needs to go in the future. To help SHARP pursue its goal of bringing literacy to the children of Milwaukee, and now, Waukesha Counties, we are developing a new website that will better serve the needs of the children and the community. We look forward to continue seeing the community join with us as we pursue our goal to expand SHARP’s influence and make a tangible difference in the lives of our children.The goals, purpose, and determination shared by the community and SHARP have motivated us to continuously re-evaluate and revise our curriculum and methods. We believe that we cannot remain static but must change with the times. Changes have included an increased use of technology, a much greater emphasis on community partnerships, and expanded field experiences that reinforce the concepts taught in the classroom setting. All the changes we put into place are motivated by the desire to do what is best for our children. Thank you for your support in 2016 and continued support in 2017.
