My Students

We have a very diverse student population. Our students come from a wide variety of income levels and social settings. All of our student population receives free breakfast and lunch.

Our middle school students thrive on learning from examples set for them and through the books they read and share.

Owning their own books, for many of our students, is a struggle.

They love the freedoms offered in middle school, when compared to elementary school, and are learning how to make decisions that will create positive outcomes. The titles we choose for them are intended to inspire social-emotional growth and learning.

My Project

We were the fortunate recipients of a Book Vending Machine, and our students are very excited! They earn tokens to purchase the book of their choice, through outstanding behaviors and community involvement. This book is theirs forever!

We need to keep our Vending Machine filled with appropriate, interesting, growth-inspiring titles!

Please help us to encourage reading, personal growth, and community understanding by allowing us to continue to provide books for our students.

Titles are chosen based on trusted recommendations, teacher and student input and careful consideration of the reading levels and interests of our population.
