Mrs. Thayer from Lexington KY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Book For All

Help me give my students the opportunity to own and select a book that is just for them. While it may be shocking, several of my students do not own a single book in their home!

My Students

Our school offers a rigorous instructional program that challenges all students at high levels, with advanced courses available in each core subject at all grade levels. French, Spanish and German are provided, along with a range of exploratory and elective classes including robotics and speech and drama. In addition, students can join more than 20 clubs and teams, which require a community service project. Our intramural program also boasts more than 700 participants each year.

Students and staff follow the Colts Creed: "Come prepared, Obey the rules, Laugh often, Take care of each other, and Success will follow"

My Project

The goal of this project is to ensure that each and every one of my students has a book of their very own. While it may be shocking, several of our students do not have a single book in their entire home, much less one that is only for them. We would like to ensure that every single child in our seventh grade class ends the year with a book of their choice to keep. The hope is to instill in our students a love of reading and the importance of reading in a world where it seems to be continually dismissed or unimportant.
