My Students

Our school is a fast growing school that has a high population of military children, and the needs that face us everyday are growing just as fast as our school.

Our students are very enthusiastic children who despite the every day challenges of having parents deployed still maintain their zest for education and learning.

Our school is unable to keep up with the demands being placed on us and look forward to receiving new and updated materials. My students need 25 copies of Mockingjay and CD that goes along with the book.

My Project

Keeping up on new and upcoming books that are available allows our students to stay engaged and excited about reading and learning. With the new books we are all so excited to read and finish a series. A lot of the students only have access to the books through the school, so being able to read a new series at school is a real treat and privilege.

Our project is so important because it introduces many students to the fun of reading and exposes them to new series that they may not be able to access if we did not provide it for them in the school.

The books engage our students in and out of the classroom and open doors to great discussions on life events.
