My Students

All of our students are currently learning at home, but very few actually have the supplies to do so. We have given out Chromebooks to each student, but they do not have things like paper, pencils, and other art supplies. For an elementary-aged student, the Chromebook is just not adequate. They need hands-on materials to learn.

My Project

Our students are all engaging in distance learning at home. Unfortunately, many of our students do not have books at home. We would like to deliver to all of our students a copy of the novel One Crazy Summer.

It is so important that our young students have a book that they can actually put into their hands.

The students need a book that they can hold and reread over and over not just to ensure that they practice reading skills. Having a book of their own to hold will also help to continue to foster their love of reading.

Please help us get a book into our students' hands!
