I am Heather Turner, your Media Coordinator.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Exciting news! During the 2022-2023 school year we were awarded two grants totaling over $3,400!The first grant was from The North Carolina Delta Kappa Gamma Educational Foundation for $483.83. We were able to purchase a total of 21 books: 6 "Journey Into Space" books, 8 "Planet in Our Solar System" books and 7 "Continents of the World" books. These books were purchased with our third grade students in mind in hopes of connecting reading with the topics students study in science and social studies.THANK YOU DKG for supporting literacy in our school!The second grant was from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation for $2,950. We were able to purchase a total of 147 books with a concentration on kindergarten - third Grade reading levels. This included some favorite picture book series like Froggy, Biscuit, Fly Guy, Charlie the Ranch Dog, Dragon, Curious George, and Elephant & Piggie We also purchased some new chapter book series like Mercy Watson, Lunch Lady, Bots, and Magic Tree House Graphics. Finally we purchased the entire "I am" young biography collection including titles like I am Jackie Robinson, I am Jane Goodall, and I am Malala Yousafzai. We are extremely excited that our Summer Reading Camp and 21st Century Summer Camp students were able to read these throughout the summer and we can't wait for the rest of the school to begin reading them this fall!
THANK YOU Dollar General Literacy Foundation for our 2023 summer reading grant!

Amazon Wish List
Amazon Wishlist for the Library: The books in this list are ones I'd like to use this coming school year for SEL (feelings) lessons, STEM lessons, and more. Not only will we read them aloud during class and complete activities based on these books, but the students will also be able to take AR quizzes on them. If you'd like to help us add these books to our library collection, we would greatly appreciate it! In most cases I have added the hardback book to the wish list because they last longer than paperback books. However, we'll be grateful for either! Thank you so much for helping us add these books to our school library!
THANK YOU to Gabe and his mama Sallie for these two books from our wishlist!
