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

It's Not Fiction, It's True! We Need Updated Non-Fiction Books

My students need more updated non-fiction books as we study and read about things in history, sports, and learning to code. Our students are very involved with robotics and will enjoy learning more about coding.

My Students

Our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with about 25% of our students receiving free/reduced lunch. Our students enjoy our schools many before and after-school programs. Such as choir, ballroom dancing and robotics are the favorites. Our students speak mostly English with others speaking Spanish, Mandarin and Cantonese. As diverse as our students are economically and culturally, they are also diverse in their academics.

Our students enjoy learning and exploring through books.

I am requesting coding, technology, history, animal, space, sports, and science books. These types of non-fiction books are wanted by our students as the older books no longer appeal to them. New and updated books in these areas are greatly needed! They come to the library at least once a week.

My Project

Our Non-fiction informational books are very outdated. Students need current updated books to check out, especially for reports and book reports.

New titles will help in gaining an understanding in many different fields of the growing world around us.

Some of our students do not have computers in their home or have little capability in using the internet for reports. This will help students have books at their fingertips in helping them learn new things in the world around us. Thank you!
