Many of our students want to become better readers. However, our budget is limited and we often simply can't provide enough interesting books for them. If you fund this grant it will strengthen our classroom library and provide new books for students to explore. 97% of our students receive free and reduced price lunches. If they can't afford to buy school lunches they certainly would struggle to buy a new or even used book. Many students could go to the library but who would take them? The community is not that safe in the evening and most parents are working during those hours. My kids love to read. They are simply lacking an adequate supply of good books to read. Please help give my students a leg up in their academic lives. This gift of books not only provides a chance to better their literacy but also to improve their financial situations by helping them succeed in school. I have chosen books that are properly leveled for their reading levels and that match my students interests. Please help us out. We need a kind benefactor to send us some interesting books. Thank you for your help.
