My Students

Our students come from all over our city. Some of our students are in all AP classes while some are in self-contained special needs classes. Students come to our school for a variety of reasons: the rich offering of athletics and after-school activities, the medical academy, college preparation activities and a variety of clubs and teams. The library is one place where many of them come together.

Our students reflect the rainbow of identities of the city.

We hope that our collection and offerings can help reflect this rainbow.

My Project

Though I have three copies of "The Hate U Give" by Angie Thomas, I can never keep them in the library. Every day, I have a steady stream of students that come to the library to ask if I have a copy but, unfortunately, I don't.

"The Hate U Give" will help our students take advantage of the best time to encourage independent reading and reading growth ---when students are motivated and excited to read for the love of reading.

Having fifteen more copies will also help us capitalize on the upcoming movie.

"The Hate U Give" explores a police shooting in the era of Black Lives Matter and explores how one African-American young woman confronts a tragic event. There are no easy answers or simple characterizations. Most importantly, the book is driving readers to the library. Support readers by helping our school library get copies of "The Hate U Give."
