Mrs. McRae from Lander WY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Amazing Books for 2nd Graders

My students need these amazing books to help them build fluency, accuracy and comprehension skills. They have a passion and love for reading and I want them to be able to take that love and grow.

My Students

Our school district serves four communities and their surrounding areas, including a nearby Indian reservation. We are a district of about 1,766 students with approximately 73% white students, 12% Native American, 7% Hispanic, 6% multi-race, 1% Asian. About 33% of our students are on free and reduced lunch, and 10% of our students are special education students.

The town of Lander has approximately 7,400 residents of which 90% are white.

The average age of Lander residents is 40 years old with 26% holding a bachelor's degree or higher.

We offer a comprehensive educational program for kindergarten through 12th grade. The district is fully accredited by the state Department of Education and AdvancED. Our program is fueled by the energy of an active and informed Board of Trustees, an experienced and dedicated staff, and interested and participating parents and community members. Our mission statement and our Strategic Plan goals drive our decision-making process.

We are home to six attendance centers. We have three elementary schools (two in-town, one rural), a middle school, and two high schools.

My Project

These books will make a difference in my students lives by giving them access to more stories. We have a school library and classroom library; however, by giving them more books to choose from we will be able to continue and enhance their love for learning. My students are always asking for new books and are eager to read anything that I have to put in front of them. These books will allow me to have a more diverse classroom library and be able to take on more of my students likes and dislikes. Interest is key in getting students to read!
