My Project

Our students have diverse backgrounds and I would love for our new library in the ANNEX to reflect this. What child wouldn't want to see themselves in the pages of a book. This library will serve students from grades K and 1, who can't wait to get their hands on a new book. Books empower my students to be critical thinkers, skillfull researchers, and ethical users of information. However, this is quite a difficult task to maintain without the necessary materials required to succeed.

Our new ANNEX library needs books to keep their interest in reading piqued!
