My Students

Our school's mission is Strong Readers, Strong Writers, Strong Problem Solvers! Our students strive to meet this goal.

We have over 1200 enthusiastic learners at our school who are diverse in many ways.

We have students from all different backgrounds and cultures. We have students with many different passions and interests, from STEM areas to theater and music. We have students who are learning English as a second language and those who are learning foreign languages. In fact, our ESL population has doubled in the last year and continues to grow. Our school has programs for life skills students and social skills programs for students with autism. About 27 percent of our students are economically disadvantaged. Forty-four percent of our population is considered "at-risk," but these labels do not stop our students.

My Project

One of the most popular sections in our school library is the graphic novel section. It is so popular that many of the books are falling apart in our readers' hands and the shelf almost always stays completely empty.

Reluctant readers are drawn to the stunning artwork that accompanies the action and dialogue found in graphic novels.

These books are fun to read and help readers feel successful when they finish one.

It is obvious that these books are well-loved and read often. The current books are very worn with pages falling out. I would like new copies so our readers can keep enjoying these books. I would also like more books so that more readers are able to check them out to enjoy reading them.
