"It's a great day to be a LION!" With a lion as our mascot, you can often hear students and staff sharing this phrase every day. Our students are proud to be a part of our learning community and staff is proud to play a role in creating diverse, energetic learners. There are approximately 700 students, grades k-5, in our school and 45% of them are low income students. I have the honor of getting to know all of them as they visit the library since I'm the librarian.
The students celebrate learning every day and are always proud to say, "It's a great day to be a LION!"
It's been said that books often provide windows and mirrors to the readers: windows to see what others are experiencing and mirrors to see ourselves in the lives of the characters. GUTS by Raina Telgemeier is an AMAZING book that helps build self-confidence and self-esteem. It supports my students's social emotional learning - both in understanding their own feelings and those of their peers.
Help me bring GUTS to our library so students can see themselves and learn how to be strong, confident young men and women.
So many of my students are eager to read this newly released book and I want to provide them all with the opportunity.
Our student's social and emotional learning will be enriched with the addition of this graphic novel. Please help our students have the GUTS to be their very BEST selves!
Thank you for supporting SEL learning at my school!
