My Students

My school is a small, rural one located in the beautiful Ozarks where hunting, fishing, and all manner of outdoor occupations and recreations are a way of life. Time, technology, and social changes have effected our community. We have become a school of increasing need. Our school participates in the CEP program, which provides 100% of our students with a free breakfast and lunch.

While financial resources may be few, we have students who are rich in inquisitiveness and desire to learn.

We have students who love living in the country, and value their history and heritage. This is a very patriotic community who appreciates the dedication and sacrifices made by those who have come before.

My Project

These leveled books will allow for parents to read with their children. Reading is the foundation of learning in all subjects. Environmental stress, a lack of reading materials, and a shortage of educational experiences has contributed to a gap between the literacy rates of students who live in poverty and those who don't. These gaps get larger as children mature.

These leveled books are being requested so we can work with the parents of our youngest students on the importance of literacy, so they have the strongest of foundations for educational success.

These books will be placed in our parent resources library collection, and will be available to parents to check out and read with their children. In addition, these books can be used to support our efforts to improve parent involvement.
