My Students

We are a Title I school in a highly transient area of a military town. My students are all second and third graders in a neighborhood that struggles economically. Nearly one hundred percent of our students qualify for free lunch and breakfast. That, however, does not diminish their enthusiasm for learning, especially when it relates to things they are passionate about!

Our student population has become increasingly diverse in recent years.

They are smart and very capable students with a true love of learning through real experiences. The economic challenges do, however, have an impact on what they have available to help them learn. These are changing times, and we have to constantly look for new ways to keep students engaged and build skills that will prepare them for potential careers.

My Project

To encourage our students love of reading, our school library strives to keep our collection current with the titles our children want to read.

Self selected library books are one of the only opportunities students have to explore their own reading interests and read for pleasure.

When they visit the school library we want to ensure that we have something to meet every reader's interest.

This project consists of newly released titles in children's literature to encourage our students to find joy in books and reading to develop lifelong learners.
