My Students

Encouraging students to meet their reading potential is imperative.

Our school has a wide demographic with over 750 students.

Many face challenges at home, academically, and/or emotionally. They are hard-working children who love being part of a bigger school community.

Students are from over 50 countries, including those from South America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. Many students are on the free and reduced fee lunch program. All of our students receive free breakfast. School starts at 7:50 am, and most students are dropped off well before the 7:20 am gate opening. After school care is also well attended. We need to provide reading resources that will spark the love of reading for our students. But, we can't do it without YOU!

My Project

Our students love reading these highly engaging books on the SSYRA 3-5 list! I Love You Michael Collins by Lauren Baratz-Logstead helps students connect with the first landing on the moon. The Edge of Extinction is a fast paced action thriller that is sure to engage both boys and girls! Chris Grabenstein's Home Sweet Motel is a heartwarming and funny story set in our great state of Florida. Mr. Grabenstein has even offered to Skype with our fourth grade students before their book battle! Sherri Winston's The Sweetest Sound is an inspirational realistic fiction, and Kallie George's A True Home is so sweet; our students love them!

All of these books are amazing and so important to our students.
