My Students

My students are hungry for good books. They had the opportunity to join any club at school, and they freely and enthusiastically chose the Book Club.

My students expressed that they chose to join the Book Club because they love to read and talk about books.

They crave a connection with other students who are also passionate about reading. I love that my students desire to create a reading community at our school.

My students are like freshly planted seeds in a garden. It is my responsibility to nurture them and help them grow. Just like a seed needs water, fertile soil, and sunlight to grow, my students need quality literature to feed their growing minds.

My Project

Our middle school students had the opportunity to choose one club this year. They had many other choices such as 4-H, Dungeons and Dragons, Fellowship of Christian Students, Science Club, Sports Club, and Yearbook. They could only choose ONE club! ONE! There are 17 students who have eagerly chosen the Book Club! Hooray!

As the sponsor of the Book Club, I would LOVE to be able to provide books free of charge to these students.

Our middle school is located in a very small town in south Louisiana. Our small town flooded two years ago in 2016, and most of our students and their families are still recovering financially.

For this project, I have chosen three books from our 2019 Louisiana Young Readers' Choice Awards list. During the course of the school year, students in the Book Club will independently read each book, and then we will meet as a club to discuss the books. Once students have finished reading these three books, they will qualify to vote for their favorite book in the 2019 Louisiana Young Readers' Choice Election.

By donating to this project, you will put books in the hands of eager readers and nurture their growing minds.
