My school is a large elementary school with a wide diversity of socio-economic, ethnic, and linguistic backgrounds. Of our approximately eight hundred eighty-five students, 67% qualify for free or reduced lunch programs. Minority students, African-American, Hispanic, Asian, and multi-racial constitute 70% of our student body. Our students speak sixteen languages, in addition to English. Our diversity is our strength. My school is a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate’s Primary Years Programme (IB PYP). As teachers, our goal is to prepare each student "to become active, caring, lifelong learners who demonstrate respect for themselves and others and have the capacity to participate in the world around them." Most of our students are eager learners, curious about the world around them. They embody our school motto of being “principled, enthusiastic seekers who engage the world.” However our student body is a transient one, as we are in a growing area. Our staff works to create an inclusive school. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis stated that “There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all.” My desire is to enlarge the world of my students by giving them high quality informational text on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) subjects. Our school recently went through state-level library compliance. Our collection was deemed "aged" by state standards, with an average copyright age of 2001 for the areas of science and technology. In order to bring our collection into compliance, I have weeded five hundred forty-nine of books from the areas of science and technology bringing the average copyright date to 2003. We need more new materials to update this area.
