Mrs. H. from Houston TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hurricane Recovery for Everyone....and New Books for the New Library!

My students need new books in their new library. As recovery continues across Houston from Hurricane Harvey, help me to create a safe space of learning and reading for all students and staff.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Even though it's been almost a year since Hurricane Harvey, the effects are still apparent with our staff and students. I want our new library to be a safe place for everyone to escape with a new book. Please help me put new books on the new shelves in the new library in the new building!

I know that some students and their families are still rebuilding so providing them reading resources at no cost is even more important and appreciated.

My Project

Our students are returning to a new school building after a school year that was traumatic for many of them after Hurricane Harvey. Please help me populate the new shelves with new books that will appeal to a variety of grade levels and reading levels.

Many of our students had few resources before Harvey and unfortunately, some of the most needy families were the ones most impacted.

Books don't fix everything, but giving deserving students access to brand new, exciting books is key to maintaining interest, building fluency and championing literacy. I work hard to select current, relevant books for our middle school and high school students.
