My Students

Our school library is the heart of our school which serves a diverse student population of students in Pre-Kindergarten through Fifth grade. We are a Title I school with 100% of our students receiving free lunch and over 75% of the student population being a minority. Our students face many challenges in their daily life at home and at school.

The library is a place where every student feels welcome.

They look forward to their visit and always come with a huge smile on their face. They love to cozy up to a good book and get lost in the words. The best part of my job is seeing the smiles on their faces or getting a great big hug from one of my students because they were able to check out a book to read at home, which often lacks any reading materials.

My Project

The library is the heart of our school. Students and faculty come to the library for a variety of reasons. Many different events are held in here as well throughout the year. It is a place with everyone, including our community, school board and business partners frequent quite often.

The supplies and materials requested in this donation will allow us to decorate for upcoming events to help promote literacy.

This year our main school wide focus is to promote literacy with our students. We have many different events planned and scheduled for the school year and these supplies will help up decorate to create a warm and inviting atmosphere in the library.

The items requested in this project will help bring Hogwarts from the Harry Potter series to our library. To get our students excited about reading we will use the cauldron, candles, sorting out, inflateable dragons to decorate and bring the harry potter world to life in our library. The candles will be suspended from the ceiling using the mounting equipment requested just like in great hall at Hogwarts.
