Mrs. Canup from Commerce GA is requesting books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Choice Reading

Help me give my students the books they've requested from the Request Notebook we keep at the front of the media center where students can write titles they would like to see in the library.

My Students

Our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with over 60% of our students receiving free lunch. As diverse as our students are economically and culturally, they are diverse in their academics. Our school has a strong FFA Agricultural program as well as a Nursing program. The Jackson County System-level administrators are working to integrate more programs, such as welding to provide our students with more opportunities. We are also home to the Region AAA Girls Fastpitch Softball team and a very strong band and choral program.

We can increase the percentage of students reading for pleasure if we can purchase books they request.

We are looking for ways to develop different types of reading to encourage them to come to the library and work on projects and grow into thoughtful readers! We want to provide books that encourage group project think-tanks as well as pleasure reading.

My Project

These are titles requested by students! Students consistently ask that various titles be added to our collection. After our budget (approximately $2 per student for library books) is spent, students are asked to add their requested titles to a notebook I keep at the front of the media center. This list is the first place I consult next year when we receive our next budget.

You could help us by purchasing these books now, as some of these titles have been requested by seniors.

Many students use our library and it is the hub of our school. I know our students, as well as myself, would appreciate any donation!
