My Students

We are a group of amazing, curious, and hardworking 7th grade students.

We are so excited and eager to discover new and relevant books that we can read as a group.

Being able to access new and exciting literature will allow us to collaborate, create, and learn in our literature circle teams!

With your generous help to procure the right materials, we can work even harder toward accomplishing all our literacy and writing goals, and that's why we are here!

My Project

Hello generous donors! We are a group of 7th grade students in Santee, California working hard to achieve our goals of analyzing amazing novels and using text evidence to support our thinking. As in many schools districts around the country, our literature kit choices are out-dated and in poor condition.

We would love the chance to read more relevant novels that spark our imaginations and keep us engaged and eager to read even more!

Obtaining a class set of the novel, The Princess Bride, by William Goldman would do just that, and we are all hoping you can help us.
