Finishing Touches

My students need a rug, easel and books to see their new library pulled together by these finishing touches.

My Students

The kids that come into my library are survivors. My students are PreK to Grade 5 and mostly come from low-income areas, but their hunger for knowledge is real.

The Louisiana Flood of 2016 may have washed away their belongings, but it has not diminished their spirits.

These kids are true learners, and they deserve every opportunity to achieve greatness.

Good hearts, capable minds, eyes open wide - my students have all of these. All they need is a chance to put them to use.

My Project

Our school has been relocated. We’ve been ushered over to a building that was built in 1937. That means my new school is the same age as "And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street."

Our library is the hub of activity for the school.

It is the one place on campus that is not worn down from years of use. Thanks to donors around the world, we have been able to revitalize it with books, technology, and life.

The items in this project will help to pull everything together. In this proposal, we are looking to obtain a rug that will anchor our group meeting area, an easel to highlight important library activity, and 2 new titles that students are eager to read! They are finishing touches of the best kind.
