My Students

Children come to the library knowing that it is a safe, positive place for them to be. They know that the library fosters curiosity and life-long learning, and is a place where they can come to seek out personal interest and also reading for pleasure.

In the library, students are encouraged to read to feed their interests and to supplement what they are learning in the classroom.

We are a small neighborhood school of pre-k through sixth grade, with about three hundred and fifty students. We are a Title One school with over a forty percent transient rate. Though we are small, we are a school family and do our best to take care of the entire student. Teachers at our school teach using Common Core State Standards, but also use Social-Emotional Learning to ensure each child is a well-rounded student. We also have a back-to-basics academic focus under Anchorage Basic Curriculum (ABC).

My Project

I love seeing students who get caught up in a series, and they can't wait to get to the next book! But sometimes the next book has been lost--book three in the How to Train Your Dragon series went missing last year, and now I have students chomping at the bit to read all of the books!

This collection of books covers many different readers--those that love graphic novels, advanced readers, and those just embarking on their reading adventure.

These books reach across several different genres--from Fantasy (Warriors and Keeper of the Lost Cities) to Historical Fiction (the I Survived series).

Your donation will contribute to the love of reading for the whole school of Northwood. Thank you for your consideration!
