My Students

My students come from a variety of backgrounds. We serve some students that are very transient and other students have the benefit of extended family in the area. We used to be a small town but they are building in our area as fast as they can and we are adjusting to the growth as fast as we can.

We serve students who are low income and may not have educational support beyond our school.

We take these challenges as an opportunity to be more creative in reaching our students.

My Project

We have a very active Battle of the Books team and this year we have so many members that we have run out of books! This project will provide the team with an extra copy or two of all 27 titles the kids have to read.

These kids are excited about reading and competing!

The Battle of the Books team allows students of all grade levels to participate in a school activity and to belong to a special group. This donation will allow there to be more students on the team and will allow more students to participate. We look forward to have a great reading year!
