My Students

This is a school of the arts with a diverse student population. We serve students with a broad range of socioeconomic and cognitive advantages and challenges.

My students are brave and ready to try anything.

They know that it's OK to be smart and to ask questions. My students are ready to grow.

While our primary needs as students and teachers are gladly met by our school and district, supplemental materials can sometimes be a little hard to come by. This is where you come in!

My Project

Students love my books to death. A class set of novels can last for about five years and then it's time to refresh my class set. Junior high students love Lord of the Flies and I want to keep the tradition going by updating my class set of novels. I currently do not have enough to serve my students.

My students are strong, voracious readers and I need to keep them challenged in the classroom.

Reading and interacting with a novel as strong as Lord of the Flies keep them active and engaged in class.

With your help I can move forward with my curriculum and finish the school year strong.
