My Students

Our school is located in Tallahassee, Florida in an area that is considered to be a food and retail desert. The nearest shopping center is over 5 miles (Walmart) away.

Despite the hardships they face, our students show up each day with a hunger for learning and a thirst for success.

During the 2019-2020 school year, teachers at our school want to promote literacy by encouraging our primary students to start reading grade level series books.

This project will help us achieve our goal of becoming an “A+” school and provide our students with a literature-rich environment.

My Project

Our primary area of focus in our English Language Arts classrooms will be the integration of knowledge and ideas.

When our students read these books, they will be able to live through the characters and see the outside world in ways they have yet to experience.

Students will benefit from this donation because it will provide them with print resources to help increase their confidence and success in reading this year. The more our students read on and above grade level books, the more likely that their individual reading levels will increase at a faster rate. This will allow us to close the achievement gap before our students reach the upper-grade levels.
