After Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast, students in the affected areas moved to a variety of areas in and around Louisiana. Our school, French Settlement High School, took in a number of those students and have made them a part of our community and family. In order to help them deal with the hurricane and its aftermath, I would like to request a number of books for our school library that address such issues as survival. These books will be placed in the library and will be available for checkout to all students. Through oral announcements and fliers, all students will be informed about the arrival and availability of the new books. Through reading these books, I am hoping that students will realize that life presents many kinds of challenges. Although Hurricanes Rita and Katrina were certainly life-changing events for us, students can benefit by reading about how the characters in these books managed to survive the various difficult situations they faced.
