My Students

We are a small, rural county school of about 55 kids, grades Pre-K to 12. Some of our classes are split classes with more than one grade.

Most of our students receive free breakfast and lunch each day.

The school's town has only about 200 people, yet some families commute to attend our school because of our small class sizes. We have a dedicated staff that cares about all of our students. There will be 12 students (grades 1 -2) who will benefit from this project.

My Project

I have been wanting to add more books to my classroom library, plus replace the worn-out ones. I'd like to grow our listening center as well. Every day my students rotate to the center, getting them more exposure to books and reading.

Also, I'd like to be able to send home books with the kids, either to borrow or to keep.

Most of my students have few or no books at home of their own. I want my kiddos to love and appreciate reading!

Besides books, we are in need of some more seat cushions and some organizational materials.
