Our students are predominately English Language Learners who may be the only family members in their households who speak English. Our school is a Title I school, and we strive to give the students many opportunities to push themselves, to exercise their curiosity, and to experience the special success that comes from tackling a challenge or taking initiative. For these students, building English fluency can be a major challenge but don't underestimate them, though! They love to read and to talk about books. They lead booktalks on our campus-wide televised announcements once a week. They post notes in the library to tell everyone what they are reading. Our students even create their own waiting-lists when someone has a popular title checked out from the library. Since most of our students have little brothers and sisters at home, it is not uncommon for a whole family to share a book and to have all the brothers and sisters (and cousins) talk about the same book.
