Mrs. Schroyer from Port Orange FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Want to Read- The Girl Who Could Dream

My students need this book to read as a club, who can then participate in our county's reading competition called Battle of the Books.

My Students

Ours is a busy school of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade mixed-level students. We have students with learning challenges and individualized education plans as well as advanced and gifted students taking high school courses. We also have students who speak other languages making English their 2nd language. Our students come from many cultural backgrounds and religions.

My school is nestled between middle income family homes and some neighborhoods comprised of trailer-type and manufactured homes.

Consequently, 63% of our students qualify for the free and reduced lunch program, and our school has been determined to be in a higher poverty area. We work with our community to obtain resources as many of our students and their families are economically challenged.

Administration and parents can only provide a certain amount of materials to establish a makerspace in our media center; we need additional materials to start this project and help our school become even more student centered.

My Project

Books are expensive. Purchasing multiple copies for a group of students is even more costly.

Without financial support many students would be forced to share copies, wait their turn at the library, or simply not be able to participate in this reading competition.

We all know reading is critical for student success. Reading books which are Sunshine State Award Winners can have more of an impact on student success.

Further, providing copies of this book will help our students be effective participants in our county reading competition called Battle of the Books. "The Girl Who Could Not Dream" is the title our students have chosen to defend, in battle, with your support.
