Students at Franklin are training to be first responders. They can study fire or law. These students have selected our school because they have the desire to serve their community. They have internal motivation! This is quite rare nowadays.
We are a small school in a large, urban district here in the heart of Phoenix, AZ.
Because we are small, we do not have the services and amenities that a large school has, like a school library. Students are clamoring for books and while teachers try to provide books for them, we just cannot feed their voracious appetite for reading.
We need books. High interest, classic, true crime, mystery, novel sets, and even non-fiction. They want it all!
Many of my students do not have the money or the capacity to even get to the public library to borrow books. Many of their needs are met here at school; however, we have not been able to meet this particular need. BOOKS!
Students are craving books on my campus. We don't have a library at my school. Our students have selected to attend this specialized school to train to be first responders, and the majority of our funds go to these programs, and as a result reading for fun has been overlooked. I am determined to fill this void and get books into their hands!
I have selected books that they have requested, or books that have always been high interest.
Many of my students cannot get to the public library and depend on us for many of their needs. Yay books!
