I am a Media Coordinator who works with students in Prek-4th grade. Rosenwald School is a multicultural population serving 685 students. According to the federal government 92% of our students meet the low family income criteria to qualify as economically disadvantaged. In comparison to the state average of 48%, recent statistics show that 42% of the student population in our school comes from single parent homes, in which 82% of these parents having only high school education or below. Robeson County is a very rural area. According to State statistics, Robeson County has a high school drop out rate of 7.72%, which is the highest ratio of students leaving school before graduation for the state of North Carolina. I would like to invite an author to our school. Miss Anne, formally a native of Ayden, North Carolina has been voted #1 for school programs. She provides songs and stories for the lower elementary grades, and a creative writing experience for the upper elementary grades. Literacy is very important and will benefit all students and especially have an impact on the struggling reader and writer. Success in school, particularly in reading, has a strong impact on students' feelings of worth and accomplishment. “Miss Anne” is an award-winning author who captivates, inspires, and motivates audiences, whether they are comprised of children or adults. Her passion for writing and her apparent love and understanding of children can be found in her books, presentations, and her life. Her visit is filled with entertainment, guaranteed to delight both students and staff. Opening with dramatic storytelling, her books come alive with her portrayal of the various characters. For this wonderful experience to happen we need funds for travel, room for overnight stay and a one day presentation. There are approximately 745 students and staff that will attend and will participate in the one day event with “Miss Anne”. Author visits trigger inspiration in the children, making them want to write better and read more. They show the children that there are careers available to them that aren't necessarily 9 to 5 jobs. Being that we live in an enterprise community, 92% of our students come from economically disadvantage homes, many of them will never have this opportunity to meet an author. An author visit will give the students one of the best gifts of all - feeling they could make up and tell great stories as well.
