My students need a bookcase and books about drugs, alcohol, and tobacco to build our classroom library.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
The goal of my health class is to inspire students to make good choices for lifelong health. My biggest challenge is getting them to understand that if they engage in risky behaviors, there will be consequences. We study substance abuse for ten weeks, and we need references beyond our textbooks.
We are a Title I school with 42% of students getting a free or reduced lunch.
Because of dedicated teachers and amazing students, we are also a California Distinguished School and a Schools To Watch model middle school! My students are used to working hard and rising to the challenges they face. They enjoy learning and demonstrating their knowledge in unconventional ways, and they really shine when they have access to a variety of resources! The success they achieve in meeting my high standards motivates them to work even harder, then they achieve even more success. It's a great cycle, especially because healthy habits will make a lifelong impact!
These materials will really improve our classroom library! The bookcase will give us a place to store and display our books for easy access. The books will allow students to research the consequences of drugs, alcohol, and tobacco by adding substance abuse titles to our collection. Knowing that they have a variety of books to choose from will help motivate my students to dig deeper into our substance abuse unit. These materials will have a big impact, indeed!
My students need access to a variety of books in order to get the most out of our ten-week substance abuse unit.
These books will help them complete their drug projects and activities while inspiring them to avoid these addictive substances. Thank you for creating our classroom library and supporting student learning!
