My Students

Our children attend a middle school of 781 children, including 584 Blacks, 152 Hispanics, and 45 Asians, Multi-racial or Caucasians. Our Special Education program includes 120 students and 25 students whose first language is not English. The families in our community have an average income of less than $50,000. Our school is a Title I school, with over 95% of our students qualifying for free meals.

According to end of grade test scores in the spring, almost 70% of our students are not proficient in Language Arts skills, which include skills such as comprehension and reading for meaning.

In addition, 36% of our students read below grade level.

My Project

Imagine excited and dedicated students preparing for competition, only they aren't running drills or reviewing plays. They are quizzing each other and taking notes from books. They are members of our reading bowl team, preparing for the Helen Ruffin Reading Quiz Bowl, a state-wide competition. The students on our reading bowl team are dedicated users of the library and have a passion for reading. They enjoy discussing books and sharing their favorite authors.

This summer our students would like to participate in a summer book camp, to begin preparation for their competition.

They need the books, so they can read and study together. The book camp would also give them the opportunity to explore the background knowledge required to understand the literature. Students would complete research, participate in scavenger hunts, and listen to guest speakers. They would take notes and write book talks for the titles they read. Their book talks would be presented on our morning news broadcast in the fall, to promote reading in our school.
