My Project

Unlock the gateway to inspiration and knowledge for our students with your support for this transformative project. Picture a world where reading becomes an exhilarating adventure, where each turn of a page leads to new horizons of discovery. This is the vision we're striving to bring to life, and we invite you to be a part of it.

In today's fast-paced world, cultivating a love for reading amidst the demands of high school life can be a challenge.

Yet, we believe that every book holds the potential to spark imagination, broaden perspectives, and ignite the flames of curiosity. Our mission is clear: to kindle a passion for literature and literacy that will resonate throughout our students' lives.

At the heart of our endeavor is the creation of a captivating reading promotion challenge centered around this year's top Texas Young Adult Books: Tayshas. With your generous contributions, we've already been able to secure copies of the Name that Book list, skillfully curated from the Tayshas list, through DonorsChoose. This is just the beginning.

Imagine the joy that will radiate from our students as they dive into these compelling tales. But it doesn't stop there. We're crafting an environment where their reading feats are celebrated in grand style. Every page they devour brings them closer to exciting incentives, tangible rewards that range from cherished stickers to sweet treats that evoke childhood nostalgia. Our students' journey will be commemorated with polaroid snapshots, proudly displayed throughout the year, an enduring testament to their literary achievements.

The impact of your involvement is immeasurable. The specific items we're requesting - the enchanting stickers, the delectable candies, and the instant-film cameras - will infuse the act of reading with a touch of magic. These incentives will transform reading from a task into a delightful escapade, nurturing a
